Identity and loss in immigrant adolescents: Conflict, Re-engagement and Reconciliation

This presentation is focusing on immigrant adolescents’ behavior at school, which had as main symptom “learning difficulties” and school failure. The adolescents, 13-16 years old, in 2nd Cross-Culture High School of Elliniko, Attica, were referrals to the School Psychologist’s Office. The cause for the referral was “learning difficulties”. The purpose of the study was to help the children themselves, the teachers and, of course, the parents of these children to revaluate their beliefs and understanding of these adolescents’ school difficulties and help them find better ways to deal with it.
