Banks, Kira Hudson; Singleton, Jennifer L.; Kohn-Wood, Laura P.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v36 n4 p231 Oct 2008
This study investigated how hope influences the relationship between discrimination and depressive symptoms. Results from participants' (N = 318) responses suggest that increased levels of hope were directly related to decreased levels of depressive symptoms. However, increased levels of hope were also related to a stronger relationship between discrimination and depressive symptoms. (Contains 3 tables.)
