Cultural Adaptation of Career Development Intervention for Latina Immigrant Partner Violence Survivors

CLLAS Faculty Research Series

“Cultural Adaptation of Career Development Intervention for Latina Immigrant Partner Violence Survivors”  

Dr. Krista Chronister, Professor, Counseling Psychology, School of Education, and Yolanda Valenzuela, doctoral student, Counseling Psychology, will present on their research in their talk “Cultural Adaptation of Career Development Intervention for Latina Immigrant Partner Violence Survivors.”

Chorister and Valenzuela have found that partner violence occurs among couples from diverse gender, economic, racial, ethnic, national, and other cultural backgrounds. However, the particular types of marginalization and oppression that Latino families, and U.S.-born and immigrant Latinas specifically experience place them at greater risk. This study evaluates the effects of a work and vocational support group intervention with Latina survivors of partner violence and addresses the intersection of women’s experiences of partner violence and work in an innovative, culturally relevant manner to advance their healing and vocational and economic development.
