Factors That Impact Ethnic Identity Development: A Review of the Relevant Literature.
Chun, Lydia Sunkyung
Despite the fact that many researchers acknowledge the significance of ethnic identity to a person's psychological functioning, few empirical studies have focused on factors that may influence the process of ethnic identity development. An examination of the empirical literature on such factors can yield valuable information to help guide clinicians, students, educators, and parents. This research paper addresses methodological considerations inherent in studies of ethnic identity, as well as different theoretical concepts of ethnic identity. A review of the literature on factors that may influence the development of ethnic identity is presented. The paper offers clinical implications and suggestions for future research on ethnic identity. (Contains 44 references and 1 figure.) (Author/BT)
