dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this capstone is to explore the experiences of cross-cultural adaptation and psychological distress of international students in Canada and provide recommendations for counsellors, educational institutions, students, and other service providers. The author seeks to inform academia about international students' experiences and challenges while attending universities in a foreign country. A systematic literature review has been applied as method of inquiry to guide the reader to understand the underrepresented experience that is shared by many international students. Both personal and social factors influencing acculturation outcome are summarized, while common psychological distress are examined alongside cross-cultural adaptation, migratory grief, and other unique sources of stress. Interpretations and implications of the findings are utilized to provide specific recommendations to navigate the field of international students.en_US
