The survey information will be used to determine the strengths of the Latino population that may lead to important information for the development of mental healthcare policy, prevention and intervention programs. It is anticipated that results of this study will inform the development of a new scale which will help us to pinpoint strengths of Latino/a individuals that may be used in informing policy, prevention and intervention programs.
All participants will remain anonymous and the information kept confidential.
PROCEDURES If you decide to participate, you will be asked to take part in this study by completing an online survey on how you have dealt with adversity. Your participation will take approximately twenty minutes. Please be aware that you do not have to participate in this research and you may stop your participation at any time without penalty. You may also skip any questions you prefer not to answer.
RISKS The possible risks associated with participation in this study are minimal. They include possibly remembering some difficult life experiences and feeling some slight emotional discomfort if you choose to discuss very personal topics in the questions. You have the right to disclose topics at your discretion. If you experience any uncomfortable feelings, referral resources will be provided at the end of the survey.
BENEFITS There is no direct benefit to you as a result of your participation in this study. Potential benefits associated with the study include gaining more knowledge about yourself and contributing to knowledge about experiences of overcoming adversity in Latino/a individuals, a topic that has been understudied within the Latino/a population and in the field of psychology.
