¿Que Podemos Hacer?: Roles for School Psychologists With Mexican and Latino Migrant Children and Families
Abstract: The economic and health situations of Mexican and Latino migrant farm workers and their children are severe, yet employment continues to be available and migration substantial. Recent public policy initiatives at both state and federal levels have increased the stress they experience. For school psychologists, questions persist about how best to support the leaning and mental health of children and families engaged in migrant farm work. This literature review includes social and cultural information needed by school psychologists serving migrant children and families, examples of successful school-based programs, and implications for public policy and practice.
