Abstract

Lack of access to Latino/a faculty role models is a significant concern within psychology (Padilla, Treviño, Treviño, & Gonzalez, 1997). Consequently, autobiographical life narratives of Latino/a psychologists may give Latino psychologists, psychology students, and early career professionals access to effective role modeling (Livo & Rietz, 1986) and guidance (Comas-Diaz, 1994). This study examined the published life narratives (n = 20) of 18 self-identified Latino/a psychologists published between 1999 and 2014. Using thematic analysis, 5 themes were identified: personal and professional development, cultural identities, collective identity, intercultural shifting and transformation of values. These themes are explored in detail, including subthemes and exemplar quotations. Researchers explored how the focus on challenges and barriers within the life narratives may impact readers. Additionally, researchers discussed the influence storytelling and autobiographical life narratives may have on future generations of Latino/a psychologists.
