Spirituality as a Cultural Asset for Culturally Diverse Youth in Urban Schools
Yeh, Christine J.; Borrero, Noah E.; Shea, Munyi
Counseling and Values, v55 n2 p185-198 Apr 2011
Spiritual issues are culturally important for many youth in urban schools. In this article, the authors describe how spirituality is associated with cultural values, mental health, coping strategies, and adjustment among culturally diverse youth. Using the case of a 17-year-old Samoan high school student, the authors demonstrate how spiritual issues related to faith, meaning making, and cultural identity can be addressed in a school counseling context.
