African Americans' Racial Identity and Socially Desirable Responding: An Empirical Model
Abrams, Lyndon; Trusty, Jerry
Journal of Counseling and Development, v82 n3 p365 Sum 2004
The authors developed a model of the relationships between racial identity development and socially desirable responding, using a sample of African American undergraduate students. Instruments used were the Racial Identity Attitude Scale-Long Form (J. E. Helms & T. A. Parham, 1996) and the Balanced Inventory of Desirable Responding (D. L. Paulhus, 1991). The results challenge previous research conclusions regarding social desirability and racial identity development. Implications of findings for researchers, instrument developers, and counselors are included.
