Description

A New Look at Neighborhood Ethnic Concentration: Implications for Mexican Origin Adolescents Cultural Adaptation (ASUF 30006252) A New Look at Neighborhood Ethnic Concentration: Implications for Mexican Origin Adolescents? Cultural Adaptation and Adjustment The proposed program seeks to de-compartmentalize neighborhood and cultural theorizing by advancing a culturally-informed set of hypotheses about how ethnically concentrated neighborhoods work to influence Latino adolescent development. Major expansions to neighborhood effects research are offered. First, this project examines implications of ethnic concentration for adjustment (e.g., emotional/behavioral health) and dual cultural adaptation. The latter is a major part of development for all U.S. Latino youth. Second, the program moves beyond residential addresses to consider how access to ethnically/culturally diverse settings produces patterns of ethnic and mainstream exposures that have implications for Latino adolescents cultural adaptation and adjustment.
