Celeste Hernandez - Ethnic Micro-Aggressions and Depression Among Latinos: Nativity, Acculturation, and Education as Contributing Factors
The present study examined the relationship between Latinos’ experience of ethnic microaggressions and depressive symptoms and whether their acculturation, nativity, and education played a significant factor for experiencing ethnic microaggressions. The data consisted of 233 participants. A series of correlations, t-tests, one-way ANOVAs, hierarchal regressions, and two moderated regression analyses were conducted. Results found that experiencing ethnic microaggressions is associated with depressive symptoms. Participants’ nativity and education were not contributing factors to experiencing more or less ethnic microaggressions. Gender served as a moderating variable between the relationship of Anglo-orientation and experiencing ethnic microaggressions. Future research suggestions and implications are discussed.
