Script for First Generation Immigrants

Culturally empathetic visits:

  • I would like to understand the problems that bring you here so that I can help you more effectively. I want to know about your experience and ideas.
  • People often understand their problems in their own way, which may be similar to or different from how doctors describe the problem. How would you describe your problem?
  • Why do you think this is happening to you? What do you think are the causes of your problem?
  • Are there any kinds of stresses that make your problem worse, such as difficulties with money, or family problems?
  • Are there any kinds of support that make your problem better, such as support from family, friends, or others?
