Research in Progress

The ethnic identity of Latino adolescents in culturally accommodated group treatment
PI: Stephanie Hoover. This project contributes to the emerging empirical literature on multicultural group counseling. Scientist-practitioners tend to incorporate culture into treatment, and an emerging literature suggests that it may improve treatment outcomes. However, scant research has examined how clients respond to such interventions during group therapy sessions. Utilizing consensual qualitative research, the study explored common themes among Latino adolescents’ disclosures and interactions during culturally accommodated group therapy.
