CANCELLED - The Socialization Practices Used by Low-income Urban Black Transient Families to Help Their Children Acculturate

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Low-income families move more often than higher income families. Unfortunately, factors such as unaffordable housing costs, loss of employment, and the lack of a safety net compels them to relocate. The children of these families often struggle in the new school environment where the rules and social norms are different. Through acculturation, these families, in order to establish a socially acceptable pattern of behavior, often experience conflict when trying to find a balance between the dominant culture and their own culture. Implications for school counselors will be provided.
