Multicultural Kids Background Circular Frame
How to engage patients from multicultural backgrounds
In an attempt to explicate how children with various cultural backgrounds come to an understanding of who they are, I have analyzed three cases in the light of social representations (MOSCOVICI, 2000) while focusing on the dialogues of positions (HERMANS et al., 1994). Looking at multicultural individuals it has become apparent that while the theory of the dialogical self has great potential and explicates various important features in need of clarification when discussing the construction of multicultural selves, it is equally necessary to justly describe the figured world in which positions have been marked. In this study, the theory of social representations was employed for such descriptions. Closely analyzing social representations will help understand how various positions are marked and in which hierarchical order. Describing these positions with the help of social representations may clarify why some children experience difficulties when developing within a multicultural background and others do not. Before discussing exactly how the children in my study have used various social representations to mediate their sense of who they are, I will discuss some important features of the theory of the dialogical self which have proven to be especially helpful in analyzing the construction of the self of multicultural persons. 
Leading Across Borders Takes More than a Multicultural Background
I would like to share a few ideas for expat parents to teach children about the language, culture, and flora and fauna of your native land so that they have a deeper appreciation for their multicultural background.
The mainstream mental health Consumer movement has grown exponentially in the past 40 years. However, the culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) mental health Consumer movement is still evolving in Australia. Some states have dedicated services for people of multicultural backgrounds called Transcultural services, whilst others have none. Some states and territories have CaLD Consumer representative programs whilst others have none.
