First, students should watch the short documentary "For Mama" to get an idea of the types of families that this trend affects and what the focus of the lesson will be. They should also look through the other documents in the resources section to get a better understanding of the different forms that this migrant working phenomenon can take.

Then, Students should look through some of the following studies that show the psychological impact of the trend on families and workers alike:

Correlates of psychological wellbeing of children of migrant workers in Shanghai, China

Psychological distress among Thai migrant workers in Israel

Mental wellbeing amongst younger and older migrant workers in comparison to their urban counterparts in Guangzhou city, China: a cross-sectional study

Students should then break into small groups to have a discussion on the different ways in which migrant working can affect the psychological health of workers and their family members. Each group should come up with a plan to try and improve the situation of migrant workers, either through a policy proposal, ideas for an NGO, or some other method.
