I am working on a story--bibliotherapy-- for middle schoolers to help them, their families, and the people who work with them to understand what it is like to leave their old lives, emigrate to the United States, and adjust to a new life. I am working with a co-author who came from Cuba, and specializes in emigration and assimilation issues.
Bibliotherapy. This is a fictional book based on real issues and theory.
I am a retired psychologist who used to work in the schools and in private practice. This added time has given me the chance to focus on writing. I want to use writing to help people to understand themselves and each other better.
