These findings indicate that low Neuroticism, high Openness to Experience, and high Psychological Mindedness predict higher SWB among a Clinical Latino sample. Being competent in Spanish might provide a protective effect against distress, but failed to provide support for a significant effect of biculturalism predicting SWB. Clinical implications and directions for future research are discussed.The three groups then completed two measures of negative affect and selfesteem . The higher Latin orientation buffered distress, with high Latin orientation participants who wrote the cultural self-affirrnation essay reporting the least distress.
