The current study investigated the direct and moderating effects of racial identity, ethnic identity, Asian values, and race-related stress on positive psychological well-being among Asian American and Asian international college students.

Results revealed that the racial identity statuses Internalization, Immersion-Emersion, Dissonance, Asian values and Ethnic Identity Affirmation and Belonging were significant predictors of well-being. Asian values, Dissonance and Conformity were found to moderate the relationship between race-related stress Asian pride backgrounds well-being.

Asian pride backgrounds, individuals in low race-related stress conditions who had low Asian values, high Conformity and low Dissonance attitudes started high on well being but decreased as race-related stress increased. These findings underscore the importance of how racial identity statuses, Asian values and ethnic identity jointly and uniquely explain and moderate the effects of race-related stress on positive well-being.

Implications for future research and clinical practice are discussed. In explaining the ways in which Asian Americans react, understand, and cope with racism, authors have used various theories and methods. These diverse theories and methods highlight the complexity inherent in the Asian and Asian American community that is related to their immigration experiences, population concentrations in certain regions of the United States, and the types of racism they experience.

Researchers often assume that Asian Americans have a pan-racial identification which could be assessed by racial identity, and others have focused on specific Asian American ethnic groups and have assessed ethnic identity or cultural values.

Yet because of the diverse histories and contexts within the Asian American community, what might psychologists assume about this community?

In the United States Census, Asian American is a racial Asian pride backgrounds comprised of at least thirty different ethnic groups and potentially many more cultural groups Census Bureau, As a result, the confusion about Asian Americans is often related to the interchangeable use of race, ethnic identity, and culture to describe this community.

Finally, ethnic identity is reflective of cultural practices as well as the acquisition and maintenance of cultural characteristics Cokley, Accordingly, Asian Americans represent approximately 4.

Moreover, Asian Americans reside in states where there are large ethnic-specific communities e.

Introduction

Owing to the uneven history of immigration to the United States because of Asian pride backgrounds and ethnic specific exclusion laws e. Two contemporary issues arise from this history which is pertinent to this study. First, Asian Americans are a predominantly immigrant community.

Furthermore, of the adult Asian Americans, between one in twenty-five and one in thirty were United States citizens Ong et al. While citizenship rates are not a perfect manner to assess acculturation or assimilation, the lopsided ratio of citizens to non-citizens does suggest the potential salience of culture and ethnicity i.

The second Asian pride backgrounds is related to the type of racism Asian Americans may experience.

Although the racism, discrimination, prejudice, and harassment Asian Americans experience falls under the umbrella of racism, the racism Asian pride backgrounds Asian Americans might vary from racism against African and Latino Americans.

Proposing that Asian Americans may have an important ethnic identity does not diminish the importance of race for Asian Americans. Race, in particular a pan-Asian American identification and affiliation may be important for some Asian Americans.

But the historical and sociological research suggests that this process of affiliating with a pan-racial group, such that ethnicities are Asian pride backgrounds longer identifiable or salient, is a long-term process evolving over many generations Espiritu, ; Jacobson, One variable that may contribute to the development of a pan-Asian American identification is experiences with racism Espiritu, But at this current point with the Asian American community where the vast majority of the adult population are immigrants, and many of the children and adolescents have been socialized in U.

In social identity theory, individuals select from a diverse range of social identity groups and once the individual chooses a group which becomes their in-group, the individual is motivated to focus on the positive aspects of that group Hornsey, ; Trepte, Some research already suggests that ethnic identification among Filipino Americans, for instance, may mitigate the impact of racism on depressive symptoms Mossakowski, Some research also suggests that individuals who highly affiliate or identify with an in-group may also experience more negative effects of racism.

It might be that for some African Americans, racial identity attitudes are the lens through which many interracial interactions are interpreted. It would also follow that potentially having a strong racial or ethnic identity may lead to poorer psychological outcomes related to racism. In reviewing the extant literature on racial identity, ethnic identity, and cultural values in relation to racism and psychological well-being are limited Kang et al.

Typically these investigations have used only one measure of ethnic identity or racial identity or conceptualized psychological well-being as self-esteem. The conceptualization of well-being as self-esteem is problematic, as psychological well-being is conceptually different from self-esteem.

Specifically, the former encompasses optimal experiences, functioning, and self-actualization Lent,whereas self-esteem Asian pride backgrounds unidimensional in nature and only captures self-worth and self-acceptance. These factors include personal growth and personal expressiveness, positive relationships with others, self-actualization, and meaning and purpose in lifeall of which are salient dimensions of wellness that emerging adults strive to develop Berk, Liang and colleagues postulated that Asian Americans experience unique forms of race-related stress, which include: Examples of socio-historical racism includes the perception of Asian American men as passive and asexual; an example of general racism includes the Asian pride backgrounds that all Asians are good at math and know karate; while an example of perpetual foreigner racism is the perception of Asian Americans as foreigners who speak poor English, even if they are American born.

Several investigations have found strong associations between perceived racism and depression among Asian Americans. These findings emphasize the importance of identifying variables that moderate the effects of race-related stress on the psychological well-being of Asian Americans. For people of color in the United States, developing a healthy identity and psychological well-being remains a constant challenge in the face of persistent discrimination.

This Asian pride backgrounds and categorization process experienced by Asian Americans Asian pride backgrounds other minority ethnic groups e. The racial identity model, according to Helmsis a dynamic and interactive process consisting of the following hypothesized racial-identity-formation statuses: Conformity, Dissonance, Immersion-Emersion, and Internalization.

Immersion-Emersion status entails the individuals immersing themselves solely in their own racial group by exclusively socializing with people of the same ethnic or racial belonging.

Resentment and resistant attitudes towards Whites and White culture are also present in this status.

Racial identity reflects a dynamic process in which people of color do not necessarily follow a linear trajectory. Finally these transitions through statuses are often triggered by experiences of racism and discrimination Quintana, Thus, it is important to examine how racial identity might serve as a moderator of race-related stress on well-being.

Moreover, individuals who operate in the Immersion-Emersion or Internalization statuses Asian pride backgrounds be more mentally prepared for these racist encounters, thus their foresight might protect against the adverse effects.

Several investigations have suggested that higher ethnic identity development is associated with higher levels of quality of lifeand satisfaction Asian pride backgrounds life.

Given the link between ethnic identity and well-being, research has begun to examine the role of ethnic identity as a moderator of perceived discrimination. Investigations that have studied the effects of ethnic identity on well-being have found disparate results. Two epidemiological studies have indicated that ethnic identity moderated the negative effects of discrimination on depressive symptoms Yip et al. These findings suggest the need for exploring the possible moderating effect between ethnic identity and discrimination on psychological well-being.

Along with examining the racial and ethnic identity of Asian Americans and Asian international students, one may also explore similar and relevant cultural values that are a part of many Asian American ethnic communities. According to Kim, Ng, and Ahna majority of Asian Americans have been living in America for two or fewer generations. Asian cultural values and beliefs include: Kim and colleagues suggest that although there are significant within-group differences among Asian Americans, this group shares significant common cultural values and beliefs.

Kim and Omizo also noted that adhering to Asian cultural values, or enculturation, may play a Asian pride backgrounds in developing a positive self-concept for Asians. But this is hypothetical since no research to date has investigated the relationship of Asian cultural values to racism and psychological well-being. The current study builds Asian pride backgrounds previous research on Asian Americans and addresses the association between racial and ethnic identity, Asian values, race-related stress and psychological well-being.

Specifically, we are interested in the relationship between racial identity, ethnic identity, Asian cultural values, and race-related stress in predicting psychological well being. It is hypothesized that race-related stress, racial identity, Asian pride backgrounds identity and Asian pride backgrounds values will be positively associated with eudaimonic well-being.

Similarly, Asian pride backgrounds ethnic identity should also uniquely promote aspects of well-being. Higher Asian values are also hypothesized to be related to well-being, as holding those values may contribute to dimensions of eudaimonic well-being such as purpose of life and relationships with others.

This study also examines how racial identity, ethnic identity, and Asian values moderate the effects of race-related stress on psychological well-being. We hypothesize that the various racial identity worldviews will have the strongest moderation effects with race-related stress on well being since theoretically these statuses specifically address race and racism.

The mean age for the participants was A demographics sheet asked participants to specify their gender, specific ethnicity i. In the development and validation of the original AVS, a confirmatory factor analysis demonstrated evidence of convergent validity between the AVS and the Individualism-Collectivism Triandis, scale since both scales measure adherence to either a collectivistic or individualistic worldview orientation.

The MEIM is one of the most widely used ethnic identity measures Asian pride backgrounds culturally diverse samples. This resulted in the item MEIM measures two dimensions of ethnic identity: Higher scores on the MEIM indicate a stronger sense of ethnic identity. The PRIAS is the only racial identity measure that has been used with Asian Americans and has been shown to provide acceptable reliability estimates with Asian pride backgrounds specific group.

In the current study, the internal consistency estimate for the Conformity scale was. Environmental Mastery refers to the characteristic in which the individuals feel they have control over daily life situations and responsibilities e. In the present study, the 3-item per subscale version, 18 items in total were used.

The 3-item version is based on the parent scale that consists of a item per subscale version.

Several longitudinal studies conducted by Ryff and Keyes have shown acceptable internal consistency estimates for the 3-item per subscale version. The 3-item per subscale measure has been empirically supported via confirmatory factor analysis. Ryff and Keyes found that the six-factor 3-item per factor model fit the data well. Scores on each subscale Asian pride backgrounds from 9 to 54; lower scores indicated lower well-being or less satisfaction in the specific construct; higher scores indicated higher self-actualization and acceptance.

Higher scores indicate higher level of stress due to experiences and encounters with racism. In Liang et al.
