Change and Healing in the South Seattle Somali Diaspora: How Lessons Learned can Help Heal Somalia
MetadataShow full item record
The Somali Diaspora is spread throughout the globe, in both more and less developed nations. Their perspective in living with other cultures is prepping the second generation of these refugees with the knowledge that, when combined with their desire for unity, will lead the forgiveness and healing of their home country: Somalia. By exploring and nurturing this process through advocacy, education, and helping those in the Diaspora learn how to forgive, this process can be expedited and strengthened. In addition, exploring non-traditional, culturally based methods of healing and forgiveness helps both the first generation immigrants overcome clan hatred, generational bias, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, as well as educating and aiding the second generation immigrants develop techniques for healing and rebuilding Somalia.
