This year psychology major Nicole examined the relationship between Latinx cultural values and interpersonal violence within Latinx populations.

"I looked at familismo, machismo, and caballerismo and how they acted as risks or protective factors for interpersonal violence within family households. A lot of families that practice these cultural values have internalized values that are unhealthy. Talking about it helps create mental health treatments that could help families.”
