Psychometric Properties of the God Locus of Health Control Scale in Churchgoing Latinas.

Hisp J Behav Sci 2018 May 20;40(2):227-239. Epub 2018 Mar 20.

Department of Psychology, San Diego State University/University of California, San Diego Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, San Diego, California.

This study evaluated the psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the God Locus of Health Control scale, a measure of the extent to which an individual believes God has control over one's health, among a sample of churchgoing Latinas ( = 398). Confirmatory factor analysis showed support for a one-factor structure and internal consistency reliability, as measured by Cronbach's coefficient alpha, was good. Evidence for convergent validity was demonstrated by significant correlations in the expected magnitudes and directions with two measures of perceived religious involvement in health. Read More

The Impact of Ethnoracial Appearance on Substance Use in Mexican Heritage Adolescents in the Southwest United States.

Hisp J Behav Sci 2013 May;35(2)

Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center, Arizona State University, Phoenix, AZ, USA.

Latinos are a multiracial ethnic group, and as such, within-group differences in ethnoracial appearance deserve to be studied and understood within the racialized American context and in connection to specific health and mental health outcomes. This article presents the findings of a study conducted with middle school Mexican heritage students ( = 1,150) in Phoenix, Arizona, and tested how non-White majority ethnoracial appearance predicted adolescent substance use, and whether the relationship differed by generation status and strength of ethnic identity. Logistic regression results revealed that generation status and ethnic identity moderate the relationship between ethnoracial appearance and substance use among Mexican heritage youth. Read More

The Relation Between Maternal and Child Depression in Mexican American Families.

Hisp J Behav Sci 2012 Nov;34(4):539-556

Department of Psychology, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA.

In an effort to better understand possible pathways that lead to a relatively high incidence of depressive symptoms among Mexican American youth, an interpersonal stress model of depression was tested using a community sample of 674 Mexican American mothers and their 5th grade children. Structural equation analyses revealed that maternal depression was positively related to mothers' interpersonal stress in their relationships. Additionally, maternal poor parenting quality was associated with three child outcomes: lower social competence, higher interpersonal stress, and higher depressive symptoms. Read More

Effects of Adolescent Childbearing on Latino Siblings: Changes in Family Dynamics and Feelings Toward the Teen Mother.

Hisp J Behav Sci 2011 Nov;33(4)

University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA.

Latinos have had the highest teenage birthrate of any racial or ethnic group in the United States for the past 15 years, yet little is known about how Latino families are affected by a teenage daughter's childbearing. In-depth interviews were conducted with 32 Mexican American younger siblings of parenting teens to discern how their sister's childbearing had affected them and their families. The most commonly reported negative effects were increased family stress and conflict, more arguments with the parenting older sister, and less time spent with family members. Read More

We know little about Mexican-American (MA) family adaptation to critical events in the informal caregiving experience but, in these days of economic and social turmoil, sons must sometimes step up to provide personal care for their aging mothers. This article compares two empirically real cases of MA males who provided such care, in lieu of a female relative. The cases are selected from a federally-funded, descriptive, longitudinal, mixed methods study of 110 MA caregivers and their care recipients. Read More

The results for the aggregated Latino group suggests a significant association between family cohesion and lower psychological distress and the combination of strong family cohesion with presence of family cultural conflict was associated with higher psychological distress. However, this association differed by Latino groups. Read More

Self-Rated Health Among Adult Women of Mexican Origin.

Hisp J Behav Sci 2006 Feb;28(1):127-142

Department of Epidemiology, The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas.

Self-rated health (SRH), a consistent predictor of mortality among diverse populations, is sensitive to health indicators and social factors. American-born Hispanics report better SRH than their foreign-born counterparts but simultaneously report poorer health indicators and have shorter life expectancy. Using a matched prospective cross-sectional design, we analyzed data from 631 age-matched pairs of women, born in the United States or Mexico, enrolled in a cohort study based in Houston, Texas.

The study samples included a total of 564 Latino and non-Latino students and parents. Analyses showed that Latino students reported a high frequency of discriminatory experiences and institutional barriers at school, and that they and their parents were more likely to experience institutional barriers compared to non-Latinos.

Predicting Adolescent Self-Esteem From Participation in School Sports Among Latino Subgroups.

Hisp J Behav Sci 2002 Nov;24(4):409-429

Wellesley Centers for Women.

Data from the in-school survey of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health on girls and boys who claim a Mexican, Puerto Rican, or Cuban heritage were employed to test two hypotheses: (1) Participating in a school-based sport is associated with self-esteem, and (2) school attachment and a sense of physical well-being mediate this relationship. The first hypothesis was partially confirmed in that participation in school sports was associated with self-esteem among Mexican American adolescent girls and boys, Puerto Rican girls, and Cuban American boys, but not among Cuban American girls nor Puerto Rican boys. The second hypothesis was confirmed in that, where there was a significant relationship between participating in a school sport and self-esteem, school attachment and physical well-being mediated this relationship.
