Adolescent pregnancies and the Latino culture: A narrative
by Torres, Yeana, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 53; 1504541
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to explore in a narrative format the struggles and challenges the writer had to overcome as a teenage mother. The Latino culture is discussed as it was an influence in the writer's life experiences. The reviewed literature focused on teen pregnancy and the Latino culture. Six relevant narratives were reviewed to support the writer's experiences and confirm the effects of cultural differences. Through this meaningful narrative, the writer hopes that social workers and other mental health practitioners will gain a better understanding of teen pregnancy in the context of the Latino culture.
