Exploring Positive Psychology, Cultural, and Family Predictors of Latina/o Students’ Psychological Grit
A positive psychology, cultural, and family framework is useful to understand Latina/o college students’ psychological grit. In the current study, we examined how presence of meaning in life, hope, gratitude, enculturation, and family importance influenced Mexican American students’ grit. Using a multiple regression analysis, we found that hope predicted and accounted for 21% of the variance in psychological grit. A discussion regarding the importance of these findings and recommendations for future research and practice are provided.
