The Impact of Violence Exposure on African American Youth in Context.
Myers, Michell A.; Thompson, Vetta L. Sanders
Youth & Society, v32 n2 p253-67 Dec 2000
Investigated whether stress and coping responses of African American youth were the result of violence exposure alone or an accumulation of stressors. Survey data indicated that violence experienced significantly predicted posttraumatic stress symptoms, but not preferred coping strategy. Life events, discrimination, violence exposure, neighborhood disadvantage, number of people in the home, and gender predicted variance in active coping. (SM)
