Malgady, Robert G.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v58 n4 p469-74 Aug 1990
Developed hero/heroine intervention based on adult Puerto Rican role models to foster ethnic identity, self-concept, and adaptive coping behavior. Screened 90 Puerto Rican eighth and ninth graders for presenting behavior problems in school and randomly assigned them to intervention or control groups. After 19 sessions, intervention significantly increased adolescents' ethnic identity and self-concept and reduced anxiety. (Author/NB)
