Implications for future research include incorporating other measures of more current exposure to adversity, such as immigration trauma, when working with recent immigrants. Furthermore, practitioners should be aware of policies related to immigration and how these might impact potential service usage and overall wellbeing among Spanish-speaking clients. More research is needed to better understand other factors that might impact parenting, mental health, and substance use associated with ACEs among Latino families. (Author abstract)
