Pieterse, Alex L.; Carter, Robert T.; Ray, Kilynda V.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v41 n1 p36-46 Jan 2013
The relationship between general life stress, perceived racism, and psychological functioning was explored in a sample of 118 Black American women. Findings indicate that racism-related stress was not a significant predictor of psychological functioning when controlling for general life stress. Perceived racism was positively associated with general life stress. Implications for practice and future research are discussed.
