MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this thesis is to explore the relationship between resilience and child wellbeing within a hyper-focused study of 6 research articles that studied multiple-generation Latino immigrant children within the United States. By comparing the various interpretations that researchers can make on what resilience is and how it can be applied within a study, this thesis argues that the manner which researchers define child wellbeing is altered. This thesis argues that the various interpretations of child wellbeing include and exclude a variety of factors that are vital to the overall positive development of the Latino youths within their respective studies. This thesis highlights the complicated nature of the use of resilience in research and urges for a broad and multi-faceted use of this complex concept.
