Dottolo and Stewart (2013; 2008) have contributed to the emerging discourse on the ways in which institutional structures shape social identities. However, those with marginalized identities often have an additional challenge of learning to embrace an identity that is culturally undervalued or derided (Espín, 1997). Theologian Fernando Segovia (2001) describes immigration to the US as “a mangled project of exalted principles and despicable behavior” (p. 267). However, psychology has yet to incorporate into its scholarship the historical and social complexities and contradictions that have influenced US immigration policies and how these policies have shaped individual lives.

She explores how gender, language, race and class shape immigrant themes of loss, longing, separation and home, including a discussion of the implications for therapy of understanding the interplay of memory and life events. Suyemoto and Donovan explore how intersections of power, privilege and oppression related to race, gender and nativity influence in-group relations among women of color. The experience of immigrant and US-born women as they negotiate the dominance of race as a social status in the United States, the influence of imposed meanings of gendered racialization and their relation to nativity and ways these imposed meanings affect relations between immigrant and US-born women are addressed.
