Description:
The intersectionality of acculturation, acculturative stress and the contextual trauma in the lives in Latina/o communities. Some studies indicate that substance dependence and abuse are growing steadily within Latina/o communities in the United States. Unexamined, it would be easy to assume that the problem lies solely within the individual’s control, however the development of social issues is often the consequence of factors extending beyond an individual's control and geography.
