abstract

  • The purpose of this article is to examine how intragroup marginalization has a potential impact on Latino college students' psychological adjustment. The concept of intragroup marginalization in this context relates to the perceived rejection of students by persons of their heritage culture group in response to the students' acculturation efforts in regard to the college culture. Counselors can facilitate college success of Latino students by addressing acculturative stressors. Intragroup marginalization and its relationship to Latino college student adjustment is illustrated and discussed through a vignette. 2009 Springer Science + Business Media, LLC.
