Hampton, R., Carrillo, R.A., & Kim, J. (1998). Violence in Communities of Color. In R. Carrillo & J. Tello (Eds.), Family Violence and Men of Color: Healing the Wounded Male Spirit (pp. 1-30). New York, NY: Springer Publishing Company, Inc.
Language: English

The article contains statistical and comparative information on couple violence and child abuse among different ethnic and racial groups. The authors conclude that when studying communities of color, research methodologies must reflect the diversity of worldviews and reanalyze data that most notably account for differences from a non-pathological perspective. More sophisticated analyses are needed to explore the complicated variables of race/ethnicity, social class, culture, social networks, acculturation and community-wide variables such as resource deprivation, residential turnover, family disruption, and other socioeconomic factors and their relationship to family violence. Future research should seek to recognize cultural differences in family functioning without viewing them as deviant or pathological, and should recognize the complex nature of differences between and within ethnic groups. Future research should also seek to address the large gaps in knowledge concerning violence among families of color, which have been understudied in years past.

Haz, A. M., Castillo, R., & Aracena, M. (2002). Adaptación preliminar del instrumento Multidimensional Trauma Recovery and Resilience (MTRR) en una muestra de madres maltratadoras físicas con historia de maltrato físico y madres no maltratadoras con historia de maltrato físico [Preliminary adaptation of the Multidimensional Trauma Recovery and Resilience scale (MTRR) in a sample of physically abusing mothers with a history of physical abuse and non-abusing mothers with a history of physical abuse. Child Abuse & Neglect, 27(7), 807-820.
Language: Spanish

This article (published in Spanish) reports on the adaptation of the Multidimensional Trauma Recovery and Resilience (MTRR) with a Chilean sample of women physically abused as children. Results indicate high interrater reliability and internal consistency with a sample of 80 Chilean women (40 identified as physical abusers of their children and 40 identified as nonabusers). The instrument was able to reliably discriminate among the two studied groups. Future work toward a Chilean development of this instrument was suggested.

Hirsch, J. S. (1999). En el Norte la mujer manda [Up North, women are in charge]: Gender, generation, and geography in a Mexican transnational community. American Behavioral Scientist, 42(9), 1332-1349.
Language: English

This study explores generational and migration-related changes in gender and marriage in two locations of a transnational community of Mexicans: the sending community in western Mexico and the receiving community in Atlanta. The principal method was life histories, focusing on 13 women in Atlanta and their sisters or sisters-in-law in Mexico; life history informants’ mothers and husbands were also interviewed. A generational paradigm shift in marital ideals has occurred, from an ideal of respeto (respect to one of confianza (trust), characterized by cooperative decision making, heterosociality, a less gendered division of labor, and a new role for marital sexuality. Although women on both sides of the border share this companionate ideal, economic opportunities, more privacy, and some legal protection from domestic violence gave women in Atlanta more leverage to push for these companionate marriages.
