Do Religious Coping Styles Moderate or Mediate the External and Internalized Racism-Distress Links?
Szymanski, Dawn M.; Obiri, Oluwafunmilayo
Counseling Psychologist, v39 n3 p438-462 Apr 2011
The purpose of this study was to examine the potential moderating and mediating roles of positive and negative religious coping styles in the relationship between external and internalized racism and African American persons' psychological distress. Participants included 269 African Americans who completed a web-based Internet survey. Results revealed that negative religious coping styles partially mediated the relationships between racist events and internalized racism and psychological distress. No support was found for the mediating role of positive religious coping or for the moderating roles of positive and negative religious coping in the links between racist events and internalized racism and psychological distress. Research and practice implications are discussed. (Contains 1 note, 3 tables and 2 figures.)
