Using Mistreatment to Persist Academically
Richardson, Sydney D.
Journal of Adult and Continuing Education, v23 n1 p32-48 May 2017
This study demonstrates adult women college students overcoming challenges due to mistreatment in order to succeed academically. Asking each participant to tell her life story allowed the researcher to find common narratives of mistreatment among them, while using critical feminist and constructivist theories for analysis. As a result, the culmination of the stories showed the power in having protective factors to build resilience and persist in life, as well as in college.
