Dinsmore, Britta Davis; Mallinckrodt, Brent
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v24 n4 p267-77 Oct 1996
Certain racial identity attitudes may involve diminished internal emotional awareness, features of a syndrome known as "alexithymia," which has been observed in survivors of extreme trauma. This study found that levels of alexithymia, but not eating disorders, were related to attitudes characteristic of early stages of racial identity development among African American women. (Author)
