RECOGNIZING AND UNDERSTANDING EMOTION IN MIGRAN WORKERS CANDIDATE
Migrant workers show an increase in the incidence of serious, psychotic, anxiety, and post-traumatic disorders due to a series of socio-environmental variables, such as loss of social status, discrimination, and separations from the family (Mucci et.all, 2020). Depression and anxiety were found to be the most common mental health disorders among immigrants (Jadad et.al, 1996; Fernandes & Perreira, 2016).The findings highlight the importance of establishing prevention and treatment services for migrant farmworkers that aim to increase levels of emotional support, self-esteem, and coping skills. The target of Community Services are prospective female migrant workers who undergo training to be dispatched to the destination country. Activities carried out with the aim of providing knowledge about how to recognize and understand emotions to detect early symptoms of psychological disorders. This knowledge is expected to prevent the emergence of anxiety and depression that may arise when migrant workers adapt to their new environment. Individuals can be aware of and know the emotions of themselves and others. By being aware of emotional conditions, individuals can assess themselves better and make the right decisions in certain conditions with appropriate actions. Final target, individuals are able to regulate the emotions they are feeling, avoid impulsive thinking, and use emotions to make positive decisions.
