A path through the primer focusing on hardtruths about ethnicity, nationality, zenophobia, race, immigration and racism.

“The context of having a parent, sibling or relative without documentation, or not being documented oneself, is a unique stressor that cannot solely be understood as generic stress or trauma. Families with members who are undocumented often “live in the shadows,” experiencing a lack of safety and fear of deportation. Because of their relationship with students and families, teachers, counselors, and other school personnel are often on the front line of dealing with mental health concerns as they arise, and should be well-informed about the challenges that immigration status issues may present.” Lisa M. Edwards and Jacki Black, Marquette University (from #100hardtruth #20: stress related to immigration status is one result)
