    Abstract: Understanding the Structures, Values, and Evolution of the Mexican Family

    Mentor: Dr. Gilberto Garcia, Chicano Edcuation Program

    It is essential to understand the Mexican family and the ongoing changes that have occurred since the increase in migration to the United States. In the past sociologists, have misinterpreted the Mexican family as a whole by using stereotypes and applying Eurocentric perspectives on the population. Through a literature review of past and present studies, this study examines the transformation of the Mexican family in the United States. The literature review includes the major trends associated with the changes and the social economic influences on the Mexican Family.
