Piedra and Engstrom (2009) noted how the life model remains general and unspecific regarding factors that affect immigrant families (p. 272). Recall that there will never be one theory or a model that can fully explain a phenomenon or lay out all the steps and procedures when working with complex issues that clients present to social workers. Recognizing this, Piedra and Engstrom selected another theory in the immigration literaturesegmented assimilation theory. They identified concepts from segmented assimilation theory to fill in the gaps that the life model does not address.
In this Discussion, you examine gaps in the life model by applying it to your field experience.
