Wester, Stephen R.; Vogel, David L.; Wei, Meifen; McLain, Rodney
Journal of Counseling & Development, v84 n4 p419-429 Fall 2006
Little research exists exploring the intersection of male gender role conflict (GRC), racial identity, and psychological distress. Accordingly, using a sample of 130 self-identified African American male participants, this study explored which aspects of racial identity mediated the relationship between GRC and psychological distress. Results demonstrated that racial identity attitudes reflective of internalized racism (Self-Hatred) partially mediated the relationship between GRC and psychological distress.
