This volume provides guidance in navigating the complexities of conducting research with immigrant-origin children, adolescents, and their families. It considers culturally and contextually embedded methodologies with a focus on ethical considerations in studying immigrant origin populations.

Topics addressed include:

  • Culturally and contextually embedded methodological approaches
  • Undocumented status vulnerability
  • Research logistics to provide protections to youth and their families as well as negotiating institutional review boards
  • The role of researchers in shaping research
  • Incorporation of a social and cultural lenses in the analysis and interpretation of studies
  • Policy implications of presenting findings with this population.

This is the 141st volume in this series. Its mission is to provide scientific and scholarly presentations on cutting edge issues and concepts in child and adolescent development. Each volume focuses on a specific new direction or research topic and is edited by experts on that topic.
