Content By: Woo, B., Fan, W., Tran, T.V., et al. (2019). The role of racial/ethnic identity in the association between racial discrimination and psychiatric disorders: A buffer or exacerbator? SSM - Population Health, 7. doi:10.1016/j.ssmph.2019.100378.

Course Description: Racial discrimination experiences are positively associated with increased psychological burden across all racial/ethnic groups. Racial and ethnic identity appear to mediate the effects of discrimination based on high, moderate, or low racial/ethnic identity-level, cultural values (i.e. collectivistic vs. individualistic), and native citizenship or immigrant status. Participants who identified highly with their white, American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN), or Latin identities reported greater levels of psychological stress in response to discrimination. Conversely, Asian and black participants with moderate racial/ethnic identity-levels reported lower levels of psychological stress in response to discrimination. Externalizing disorders (e.g. substance use disorders) were strongly associated with individualistic cultures (i.e. whites and blacks). Internalizing disorders (e.g. mood or anxiety disorders) were strongly associated with the collectivistic cultures of AI/AN, Asian, and Latinx participants. US born participants reported greater psychological stress following racial discrimination experiences compared to immigrant participants.
