Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This piece will examine the experiences of two Puerto Rican researchers who engaged in advocacy service and research with Puerto Rican communities on the island and in the United States in the aftermath of Hurricane María. Through this piece, the authors will share the challenges associated with conducting research and leading advocacy efforts as well as the rewards inherent from this work. Most specifically, the authors will discuss the secondary trauma and healing they experienced through their work with the Puerto Rican community as well as the ethical dilemmas they encountered throughout this process. The authors will discuss how these dilemmas were identified and navigated through the American Psychological Association’s (APA) ethics code and the National Latinx Ethical Guidelines.
