Ethnic Minority Research: Trends and Directions.
Sue, Stanley
In asserting that there is a need for research on ethnic minority groups, this paper discusses the trends and directions for such research. Recommendations are made in areas such as the types of research needed, the relationship between research and minority group needs, increasing the utility of research, the appropriateness of methodological and conceptual strategies, the invovlement of qualified and sensitive researchers, increased collaboration between researchers and the community, the enhancement of mental health, the need for more research funds, and improved access to policy makers and funding sources. It is also argued that if the research needs of ethnic minorities are to be dealt with, the current trend to include more minority group persons on research review groups, in administrative positions, and as decision makers must be expanded.
