Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative study was to explore the levels of depression, anxiety and stress among Latinos who were separated from a family member due to deportation by the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. The study also looked at differences in the levels of depression, anxiety and stress and type of family member, as well as the participant's current major area of concern. This study surveyed 32 participants using snowball and convenience sampling through a self-administered survey. The results in this study indicated no statistically significant relationship between levels of depression, anxiety and stress with deportation of a family member. Although there were no significant relationships found between these variables, the majority of the participants demonstrated high levels of depression, anxiety and stress. Implications for social work practice and directions for further research are discussed.
