<p>Hello,</p> <p>Below is the presentation abstract details for my project:</p> <p>Abstract Title: Relationships Between Perceived School Climate, Exposure to Community Violence and Mental Health Problems in Asian-American And Latinx Youth</p> <p>Abstract Authors: Abigail Gonzalez Bejarano, Marjorie Llanera, Blanche Wright M.A., and Anna S. Lau, Ph.D.</p> <p>Institution Name: University of California, Los Angeles</p> <p>Abstract: Research demonstrates that exposure to community violence is related to internalizing and externalizing mental health difficulties in youth (Willemen et al., 2008). However, students with a positive perception of school bond have lower levels of behavioral problems (Maddox et al., 2003), while those with negative perceptions of school safety have higher levels of depressive symptoms (Maffini, 2016). The current study examines protective factors (i.e. school bond) and risk factors (i.e. community violence & school disenfranchisement) of the mental health status of racial/ethnic minority youth. The sample is 2172 students within an urban school district; 51.1% were male and 57% were in high school (range: 4th-12 th). 63.12% were Asian-American, and 36.88% were Latinx. Aligned with hypotheses, regression analysis reveals that school bond is a protective factor (<em>B</em> = -1.72; p&lt;.001), while community violence (<em>B</em> = 1.47; p&lt;.001), and disenfranchisement (<em>B</em> = 2.62; p&lt;.001) are risk factors to mental health difficulties. Moderation analyses revealed significant differences in the relationships for School Disenfranchisement, Community Violence, and mental health difficulties by race/ethnicity.</p> <p>Attached you will find the presentation slides for the video presentation I will later be uploading.</p>
