Journal of Latina/o Psychology
• Recognizing the Needs of a Growing Population
The new Journal of Latina/o Psychology will address social justice, advocacy and policy related to Latinos — and improve the training of psychologists who work with them. (from Monitor on Psychology, February 2013)
The Journal of Latina/o Psychology is committed to publishing scholarly writing on research, practice, advocacy, education, and policy relevant to Latino communities. The journal publishes empirical, theoretical, methodological, and applied research.
We are particularly interested in manuscripts that contribute to knowledge of Latina/o psychology through research, methodological innovation, and inquiry; develop and advance theories pertinent to Latinas and Latinos; promote education and training of psychologists to work with Latinas and Latinos; address issues of social justice and advocacy in Latina/o communities; promote the application of research and training to advancement of policy related to Latino individuals and communities; and use quantitative, qualitative, or mixed method approaches.
We encourage articles on topics such as
- immigration and its impact
- health and wellness
- mental health issues
- Latina/o identity
- multigenerational families
