dc.description.abstractBackground: Few studies investigate unique psychosocial hardships and trauma during immigration by mode of travel. This retrospective pilot study explores the trauma and hardship during different types of immigration travel among Latina women and explores its relationship to psychiatric diagnosis in Latina immigrant women with and without psychiatric diagnosis history. Conclusion: In this small pilot study, “coyote” travel significantly correlated with trauma exposure. There was a numerical suggestion that coyote travel is more often associated with depression than non-coyote travel. With only 14 individuals this pilot study had limited power to detect effects. The lack of difference in depressive symptomatology one year after arrival between the group of people previously diagnosed and community volunteers suggest a multifactorial high-risk adjustment period warranting a high-degree of clinical suspicion and screening in all newly immigrated patients.
