In this book Julia Vassilieva offers an innovative approach to the analysis of the psychological experience of immigration, re-examining a common view on immigration as adaptation and urging to acknowledge a powerful potential for growth inherent in this life transition. Addressing both "having" and "doing" side of personality Julia Vassilieva presents an in-depth analysis of how psychological identity bears on the construction of life tasks in post-immigration period and how these tasks become instrumental in personal development. The book is addressed to psychologists working in the areas of personality, developmental and cross-cultural psychology, undergraduate and post-graduate psychology students and everyone who is interested in the experience of immigration - a phenomenon that becomes increasingly common in the twenty first century.
