I want talk about this~

Hi, everybody:

I hope you’re all having a great week. Tomorrow the due day of my paper topic of my psychology counseling course. As one of the oversea Chinese students, I strongly feel that the mental health of this particular group needed to be concerned more by society. Facing with the enormous cultural conflict, the brand new circumstance will cause so many problem they never dealing with. So some of them may feel unable to fit and helpless. This potential risk may lead to the depression and even more serious mental health problem. My paper will force on cross-culture counseling, and discuss about the mental health status of oversea Chinese in U.S. Then try to find some efficient method for over sea Chinese student based on the particular cultural background. I think this should be a very interesting and challenging topic.

  1. Hello, Weifan. I graduated from Muskingum College – as it was known at the time – in 1984. Since then, I’ve lived and worked in many cities from the midwest to the east coast. For the past 18 years, I have lived in the Boston area, and it has been my pleasure and my honor to have worked with and made friends with many people from other countries and cultures. I consider myself lucky to have been exposed to life I otherwise would not have known, if not for meeting my new friends in Boston.

    The topic you’ve chosen for your paper seems definitely heartfelt, but also prevalent in what you and others in the world are experiencing when you choose to leave your country in an effort to find other opportunities and, maybe, a different way of life. It seems cliche to say that we’re living in a global world, technologically, but the truth of the matter is that . . we are! However, our technological advances do not take into consideration a person, such as yourself, leaving your homeland to attend school in the United States, or any other foreign country. I hope I’ve interpreted the topic of your upcoming paper correctly . . . and if I have, then I have to agree with you that it is a very important paper to be written, and is a very important experience to express. My education has very little psychological background, so I honestly cannot imagine some of the difficulties you and your peers may have experienced … but I have to believe it has been difficult. And depressing, at times.

    I felt compelled to respond to you because I believe you posted openly and honestly, not only to reach out to the Muskingum community, but to point out the difficulties you’ve experienced. You may correct me if I’ve misinterpreted. I thank you for sharing, and I commend you for speaking openly.

    If you would like me to help you in writing any of your papers, I would be happy to do so for you. I am a writer/editor by profession (have been for over 26 years), and have actually just volunteered to help teach English to those for whom English is not a first language. I’m am doing so in a suburb of Boston.

    Good luck on your paper tomorrow. I wish I had learned of your due date sooner. I would have been more than happy to help!

    Highest regards!
