The Discrimination and Coping (DISCO) Study

Principal Investigator: Irene J. K. Park, Ph.D.

We are currently seeking participants for a new study on Mexican/Mexican American families. In particular, we are looking for families from the local Michiana area who fit these criteria:

1) Mexican American adolescents ages 12 – 17 years old;

2) residing with one or both parents, also of Mexican origin;

3) the adolescent was born in Mexico or the United States;

In this study, we hope to learn more about perceived discrimination, emotion regulation, family processes, and mental health among Mexican/Mexican American youths and their families.

If you are interested in participating in this project, please contact Rosa Maria Salinas at 574-631-2854.
