Rural Ethnic Minority Youth and Families in the United States free pdf This book examines the implications of ethnic minority status and rural residence for adolescents and families in the United States, addressing both the developmental and mental health difficulties they face as well as their sources of resilience. It describes the challenges of conducting research with these populations and offers possible solutions. Beginning with an overview of the unique circumstances of minority youth residing in rural areas, the book offers theoretical perspectives that incorporate the influences of minority status (e.g., acculturation and discrimination, rural location) and examines likely consequences for young people coming of age in this context. In addition, the book examines research findings with regard to the development and adjustment of rural youth from particular ethnic groups, with particular attention paid to the critical role of family and community contexts.
