How have the immigrant rights movement and immigrant rights voices resisted the negative dominant discourses about immigrants? What discourses and language has the immigrant rights movement and immigrant leaders created?

Nidya – a formerly undocumented immigrant therapist – will discuss the connections she has found and utilized between the immigrant rights movement and Narrative Therapy and how these have inspired her therapeutic work with clients.
