Mexican-American Women in the Colonias: Effects of Cultural and Environmental Stressors
This study examined stressors experienced by a group of Mexican-American women living in rural areas along the Texas/Mexico border, as well as the methods employed to cope with the identified stressors. Major stressors were related to financial issues, with primary coping mechanisms including: involvement with others, spiritual involvement, as well as various activities (physical, creative, soothing). Implications for allied health professionals working with this population and intervention strategies are also discussed.
