Vacek, Kimberly R.; Coyle, Laura D.; Vera, Elizabeth M.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v38 n2 p99-111 Apr 2010
This study examined hope, optimism, self-esteem, social support, stress, and indices of subjective well-being (SWB) in 137 low-income, urban, ethnic minority adolescents. Hope, optimism, and self-esteem were significant predictors of SWB indices, but stress predicted only 1 SWB index: negative affect. No moderators of stress and negative affect were identified.
