Cavazos, Javier, Jr.; Johnson, Michael B.; Sparrow, Gregory Scott
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v9 n4 p304-316 Oct 2010
Eleven Latina/o college students were interviewed to provide insight into what kind of coping responses they used to overcome challenges and when such responses were employed. The following responses emerged: positive reframing, acceptance, self-talk, maintaining focus on final goals, using low expectations as motivation, self-reflection, taking action, and seeking support. A discussion regarding the importance of these findings is provided and implications for practice are presented.
