“Where are you really from?”, Discrimination and Psychological Well-being among Asian American Youth
Like other minority groups, Asian American youths experience discrimination. And, as with other groups, discrimination is harmful for Asian American health. This panel advances the field’s understanding of the nature and effects of discrimination by exploring different subcategories of discrimination, and examining the role of resilience and identity in coping with discriminatory experiences.
