Adolescents in our multicultural society are broad-based. Indeed, being born and raised in a different country from their parents brings the adolescents into negotiations, into blending of cultures and identity arrangements thus allowing the multitude of parentage and affiliation processes to interact harmoniously. This weakness is linked to transcultural risk, but is also a source of creativity as long as this cultural blending, proper to all those who engage in the task of transforming the notion of otherness into new constructs of self and new relations to others, is acknowledged. This must be taken into account to understand and treat adolescents, wherever they come from.

Keywords: "Second generation" adolescents, children of migrants, otherness, identity, creativity.
