Evaluating the Black Family: An In-Depth Examination at the Stress & Resiliency Associated with Survivors of Hurricane Katrina
Harris, Eric Dion

2007, Master of Science, Miami University, Family and Child Studies.
As a researcher, I am most interested in the journey in order to understand how families have responded once exposed to specific familial stressors. A qualitative research paradigm was used to understand how the six adults from New Orleans were affected by Hurricane Katrina. Results indicated that the same stressors that were in the African American families after Hurricane Katrina were a staple well before. Limitations were also addressed. The data collected from these contributing adult members of African American families suggest there is a lot more research that need to be conducted concerning forced relocating that includes the effects on family life and the need for government intervention.
