Abstract

There have been significant advances in Latinx psychology research in the past two decades, and the field is now in a position to focus on how new methodologies can advance research in this area. The promising new methods can further our understanding of key factors that research has found to be important in Latinx psychology. In this vein, this special issue highlights how methodological advances can advance research on parenting, relationships, community contexts, intersectional identities, intersectional oppressions, and international contexts. In this issue, we provide examples, insights, and recommendations into qualitative, quantitative, and mixed method approaches. Three empirical examples demonstrate methodology with Latinx populations of children and parents, romantic partners, and adults in community contexts. Three conceptual papers provide guidelines on effective implementation of qualitative methods with Latinx populations, an overview of intersectional approaches to quantitative analyses, and insight into how international collaborations can advance global Latinx psychology. Effective use and application of innovative methods will improve the quality of our research studies and, in turn, enhance the scientific advances we make in Latinx psychology.
