Discrimination and Acculturative Stress among First-Generation Dominicans
Dawson, Beverly Araujo; Panchanadeswaran, Subadra
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v32 n2 p216-231 2010
The present study examined the relationship between discriminatory experiences and acculturative stress levels among a sample of 283 Dominican immigrants. Findings from a linear regression analysis revealed that experiences of daily racial discrimination and major racist events were significant predictors of acculturative stress after controlling for demographics, acculturation, and transnationalism. Findings from this study have implications for interventions with this understudied and underserved population given the evidence of the negative effect of discriminatory experiences.
