This poster discusses data from an online survey distributed to African American and Latinx college students on a large urban university campus. The study examines the relationship among adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), stress, and resiliency with career search-self efficacy. ACEs have been associated with negative health and workforce outcomes. Minorities tend to have a higher prevalence of ACEs, and the impact of ACEs on career development has not yet been explored.
Counselors will understand the impact of adverse childhood experiences on career search self-efficacy.
Counselors will learn about the racial disparities in adverse childhood experiences, career development, and workforce outcomes.
Counselors will learn about the role of stress and resilience in minority career development.
