Description

This review summarizes research on links between ethnic and racial identity (ERI) with psychosocial, academic, and health risk outcomes among ethnic minority adolescents. With notable exceptions, aspects of ERI are generally associated with adaptive outcomes. ERI are generally beneficial for African American adolescents’ adjustment across all three domains, whereas the evidence is somewhat mixed for Latino and American Indian youth.
