  • Optimism and the American Dream: Latino Perspectives on Opportunities and
           Challenges Toward Reaching Personal and Family Goals

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Richard C. Cervantes, Elias Koutantos, Martha Cristo, Rosa Gonzalez-Guarda, Diego Fuentes, Nancy Gutierrez
      Pages: 135 - 154
      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Volume 43, Issue 3, Page 135-154, August 2021.
      Trends in positive psychology suggest optimism is an important trait related to happiness and well-being and that through the teaching of optimism, well-being can be enhanced (Sin & Lyubomirsky, 2009). The purpose of this study was to identify areas of optimism within the context of the American Dream among Hispanic/Latino/as and to understand factors that create barriers to having an optimistic outlook on achieving the American Dream. Data for this study came from research designed to identify sources of acculturation related stress among Hispanic/Latino/as. A sample (n = 93) of Hispanic/Latino/a adults were recruited for focus groups in California and Massachusetts. Results indicate that participants were optimistic in achieving their dreams, which included financial achievements, ownership, educational opportunities, and more. Some participants acknowledged that these expectations were unrealistic and were challenged by discrimination, limited skills, and lack of legal documentation status. Studies of psychological interventions that foster optimism among Hispanic/Latino/as are needed.

  • Acculturation of Migrant Latinos in a Positive Psychology Framework

      Authors: Laura Dryjanska, Cheryl Zlotnick
      Pages: 155 - 173
      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Volume 43, Issue 3, Page 155-173, August 2021.
      This article features a positive psychology perspective on migration, using hope theory as a conceptual framework to explain life satisfaction of Hispanic migrants in the United States. The cross-sectional study considers the association of acculturation and social support on wellbeing while accounting for the demographic and personal characteristics of Latino migrants (N = 169) in California and Florida. The final regression model (with the demographic variables of gender, health, realized expectations, the main effect of country, and the interaction variable of realized expectations by country), resulted in significant associations between life satisfaction and the variables of gender and health status. The study demonstrates that expectations (among other factors) significantly predict life satisfaction of Hispanic migrants, which implies that contextualizing migration experience in the positive light (rather than looking at stressors) may impact their quality of life.

  • Impact of COVID-19 on Latinos: A Social Determinants of Health Model and
           Scoping Review of the Literature

      Pages: 174 - 203
      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Volume 43, Issue 3, Page 174-203, August 2021.
      The purpose of this scoping review of the literature was to analyze the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the living conditions of Latinos (Hispanics) in the U.S. from a social determinants of health perspective. We developed a conceptual model based on the social determinants of health framework to guide the search, extraction, analysis, and interpretation of the bibliographic material. A systematic review of peer reviewed literature published in 2020 in scientific journals in the social, health, and behavioral sciences was conducted. A total of 37 articles met the selection criteria, 12 were original investigations with primary data collection, and 25 were studies reporting results of secondary data analysis using public or private databases. The representation of Latinos in the study samples ranged from 5% to 40%. The results of our review are compelling in terms of the overrepresentation of Latinos in SARSCoV-2 positivity and COVID-19 morbidity and mortality rates. The risk factors identified include working in a job considered essential, living in a geographic area with a high population density of Latinos and blacks, overcrowded living conditions in the household, limited English proficiency, and being unable to systematically carry out preventive behaviors known to be effective for infection avoidance. Existing national surveys and registries suffer from assumptions and omissions regarding variables relevant to Latinos. New studies must be guided by inquiries on the usual social determinants of health, but also those relevant for Latinos, such as national group, generational status, and language, among others.

  • Adult Beliefs About the Migration Motives of Unaccompanied Honduran Youth

      Authors: Amy L. Clark, James L. Williams

      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Volume 43, Issue 3, Page 204-220, August 2021.
      A number of researchers have examined undocumented migration from Central America. This literature lacks information about adult beliefs regarding the motivations of minors who journey from Central America unaccompanied and undocumented. Using data from a recent survey conducted in Honduras, we examine adult Hondurans’ beliefs about why unaccompanied minors leave the country unaccompanied. The dependent variable is a dummy variable that measures “why children leave the country.” Predictor variables are attitudes toward smuggling, willingness to leave without documentation, deportation experience, age, income, and residence in the northern part of Honduras. Using multinomial logistic regression, we find support for four of the eight hypotheses. Findings indicate that adults from the northern region are most likely to believe minors would leave for reasons associated with undocumented immigration. Those who are younger, with lower incomes, and with less access to sanitation are more likely to believe minors would leave without documentation.

      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Volume 43, Issue 3, Page 221-236, August 2021.
      Though there is research regarding the political speech and rhetoric of minority politicians, activists, and other elites, there is little on the everyday, casual political discourse of minorities in the United States. More specifically, there is none on Latinx political dialog amongst social groups. In this paper, I ask whether Latinxs are more, or less, prone to political conversations in different social contexts than non-Latinx Whites. I find evidence that Latinxs are less likely to discuss politics with family, friends, and coworkers. These findings are important when considering explanations for various political behaviors and political affect amongst Latinxs.

  • The Role of Intergroup Threat in Support of Punitive Policies Toward
           Mexican Immigrants

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Steffanie Guillermo, Jose Zuniga, Angela D. Quiroz
      Pages: 237 - 256
      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Volume 43, Issue 3, Page 237-256, August 2021.
      The present research examined the degree to which symbolic and realistic threat perceptions of documented and undocumented Mexican immigrants predicted support for willingness to provide basic resources (e.g., food, water) in detention centers and agreement with policies that restrict Mexican immigration through detention and deportation. Our study recruited 191 participants online via Amazon Mechanical Turk. Results showed that undocumented immigrants were more realistically, but not symbolically threatening than their documented counterparts. Intergroup threat predicted lower willingness to provide basic resources in detention centers and greater support of punitive policies. This finding was not moderated by whether participants evaluated documented or undocumented immigrants. Once we accounted for social dominance orientation (SDO), political attitudes, and contact with Mexican immigrants, only SDO remained a significant predictor of attitudes toward resources in detention centers, while all variables predicted more support for punitive policies. These findings highlight the roles of symbolic and realistic threats, SDO, political attitudes, and intergroup contact in endorsing punitive immigration policies.

      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Volume 43, Issue 3, Page 257-277, August 2021.
      Drawing insights from the life course perspective, this study examined individual and contextual factors that shaped volunteering practices among ethnic-racial minority immigrants across their life course. Using purposive sampling, 40 ethnic-racial minority immigrants at various stages of adulthood (18–65 years old) were recruited from a southwestern U.S. state on the US-Mexico border in 2018 to participate in an in-depth interview to better understand how their personal experiences, ecologies, and life histories influenced their volunteering practices. Grounded Theory Method was used to analyze the data. Overall, the participants’ volunteering propensities were influenced by (1) significant life events that served as turning points that motivated their desire to help, (2) linked lives in connection with their personal and professional life domains, (3) human capital and agency that served as their resources in volunteering and access to volunteering opportunities, and (4) the context that made volunteering conducive.

      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Volume 43, Issue 3, Page 278-293, August 2021.
      Individualized short message service (SMS; i.e., text messages) and/or phone calls (PC) in Spanish were examined as an effective interventional approach to increasing daily fruits and vegetables (F&V) and physical activity (PA) among community-dwelling Spanish-speaking Hispanics. Participants were randomized to one of three ordered groups: Control (n = 25), SMS (n = 27), or SMS + PC (n = 26). PA and F&V intake were measured at baseline and 12 weeks later, when acceptability and usefulness were evaluated. Using the Cochran-Armitage test, we found an increasing trend in the proportion of vegetable intake (p = .03) and leisure time PA (p = .004) across the interventions. Most respondents from the SMS and SMS + PC groups approved the modalities and frequency of contact and reported following the advice provided. SMS + PC was the most effective intervention to improve PA and vegetable intake among respondents. These findings support feasibility and acceptability of using remote access platforms, specifically, text and phone-based health communication strategies, with Spanish-speaking participants.

  • The Effect of Child Gender, Parent School Involvement, and Parent Language
           Use on School Functioning Among Trauma-Exposed Latinx Youth

      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Volume 43, Issue 3, Page 294-310, August 2021.
      High rates of trauma exposure can impede school functioning, which is predictive of many negative long-term outcomes. This study examined school functioning in Latinx children with clinically elevated levels of posttraumatic stress symptoms. We found that child gender, parent language use, and parent school involvement were associated with school functioning in complex ways. Interactive effects revealed that the association between parent school involvement and child school functioning depended on parent language use. Greater parent school involvement was linked with better school functioning when parents spoke more English, but parent school involvement did not improve school functioning when parents spoke more Spanish, which may reflect Spanish-speaking parents’ challenges engaging with schools. These findings have important implications for improving academic outcomes for trauma-exposed Latinx youth.

  • Rejection-Identification: An Examination of Group-Level and

      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Volume 43, Issue 3, Page 311-331, August 2021.
      This study investigates the Rejection-Identification Model (RIM) by examining impacts of group-level and personal experiences with discrimination on different measures of ethnic identity and cultural importance among Hispanic immigrants. The RIM is used to describe associations between discrimination and increased ethnic identity and the mediating role of ethnicity on negative outcomes of discrimination. Growing empirical support for the RIM has prompted inquiry into its application among different populations, including immigrants who face numerous types of discrimination. Using the Latino Immigrant National Election Survey, the study found that the perception of group-level discrimination was associated with a higher likelihood of reporting Hispanic identity importance, however, personal experiences with discrimination were not. Further, results showed that neither type of discrimination impacted cultural or Spanish language maintenance importance. This paper discusses the implications of these findings and how the protective factors presented by the RIM may vary among populations and when considering personal and group-level discrimination.

      This study examined differences in mother-reported physical activity (PA) and screen time (ST) based on child sex and mothers’ perceptions of PA resources for Mexican-heritage (MH) children residing in Texas-Mexico border colonias. Mothers with children 8 to 10 years old (n = 335) from colonias in south Texas reported if there were places for their child to be physically active and their child’s hours of PA and ST per day during the week and weekend. Two-way ANCOVAs examined differences in child PA and ST based on presence of PA places and child sex. Only 46.0% of mothers (n = 159) reported places for their child to be physically active; with no significant difference based on sex. Mothers’ perceptions of a place to play was differentially beneficial for girls’ weekday PA and ST. Findings suggest a need to increase perceived and/or actual access to PA places in colonias communities, particularly for girls.

      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Ahead of Print.
      Acculturation is multidimensional in that it encompasses both heritage and dominant cultural orientations, and it can take place across multiple domains; therefore, biculturalism, an acculturation strategy involving strong orientations to both heritage and dominant cultures, can also occur for the domains of behaviors and practices, values and beliefs, and cultural identity. The current study is the first to compare the relations between biculturalism and self-esteem across these three cultural domains. Mexican American undergraduate students (N = 219; Mage = 18.82 years, SD = 1.09), who were primarily women (72.15%) and born in the US (81.74%), responded to an in-person survey. We found that biculturalism is differentially associated with personal and collective self-esteem depending on the domain, with stronger associations for bicultural behaviors and weaker associations for bicultural values. Our findings highlight the importance of recognizing the multidimensionality of biculturalism in theory, research, and practice.

  • Acculturative Stress and the Effects on Health and Health Behaviors in
           Hispanic Immigrants: A Systematic Review

      Authors: Alyssia M. Miller De Rutté, Brianna P. Rubenstein
      Abstract: Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this systematic review was to investigate previously published literature that examined the impact of acculturative stress on health in Spanish-speaking populations. The database search yielded a final count of 32 eligible articles for inclusion in this review. Age, acculturative stress measure, and study results were analyzed. Overall, 81.2% of studies investigated the impacts of acculturative stress on mental health with the majority concluding that increased acculturative stress had a significant relationship with greater mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, and psychological stress. Other studies in this review examined impacts on physical health and health behaviors, but yielded inconclusive results indicating that these are areas for future research.
