Abstract

The following pilot study explored whether PhotoVoice (Wang & Burris, 1997) could serve as an art therapy strategy for exploring acculturation with a group of immigrant student mothers. Additionally, the research investigated the potential of adding a quantitative measure of acculturation to the qualitative design of the PhotoVoice methodology. Data collected through the images and audio recorded sessions supported that PhotoVoice could be a strategy as well as a qualitative research method for identifying issues, strengths and challenges of a community of student mothers that have immigrated. The mothers identified four themes relevant to their immigration journey: 1) Home Away from Home: Openness, Destiny: Coming from Different Backgrounds; 2) Clothing as a Symbol of Dual Identity and Acceptance; 3) Food is an Element of our Life; 4) The Bonjour/Hi: Accessibility to Information.
