Abstract

In this work, we examined the situation of international migration and highlighted the unique psychological and social dimensions of this complex phenomenon. From the perspective of positive view of immigration (entrepreneurial, proactive, etc.), we describe some background and personal factors that expose these people to psychosocial risks. For each factor, we put forward some intervention strategies from psychological theory.
