JUNTOS Familia

In this study, we aimed to learn how Latinx/Hispanic high school students and parents cope with experiences of discrimination and racism. The study consisted of virtual focus groups via Zoom, in which:

  • Groups of five to ten high school students met to discuss how they have experienced racism and discrimination and how they cope and address those circumstances and the feelings associated with them. 
  • Groups of five to ten parents of high school students met to discuss how they have experienced racism and discrimination, how their children have experienced racism and discrimination, and how they cope and address those circumstances and the feelings associated with them. 

Our long term goal is to help develop a family-based program that helps students and parents learn how to cope with discrimination.

Interested Participants:

We have concluded focus groups for this phase of the project. However, this is a 5-year study and we will continue to conduct focus groups in the future. Please reach out if you are interested.
