Abstract

This research project is designed to look at the relationship between Latino children’s emotional and behavioral well-being and their acculturation level. This quantitative study is designed to identify whether or not there is a relationship between the two variables. The data was collected from mental health professionals who currently work with Latino children between the ages of zero and thirteen. Each individual completed an online survey which included an Acculturation Scale and Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire to help determine the relationship. This quantitative study and surveys are meant to help researchers understand issues of acculturation and how such issues pertain to Latino children’s emotional and behavioral well-being.
