Africana People in China : Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Migration Experiences, Identity, and Precarious Employment Hardback
Part of the Explorations in Mental Health series
This book examines the psychosocial experiences of foreign workers from Africa and its diaspora in China, within the context of international socio-economic forces.
By exploring employment-based migration from a psychoanalytic perspective, this volume investigates the utility of adaptive ambivalence and the challenges that migrant workers face around issues of self-development, agency, and identity.
Through a careful analysis of interviews with Africana people, the author demonstrates that the capacity to be reflective and resilient alongside having a strong and diversified support network are crucial for the psychological well-being of those living and working in unfamiliar geographic and cultural conditions.
