Cokley, Kevin; McClain, Shannon; Enciso, Alicia; Martinez, Mercedes
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v41 n2 p82-95 Apr 2013
This study examined differences in minority status stress, impostor feelings, and mental health in a sample of 240 ethnic minority college students. African Americans reported higher minority status stress than Asian Americans and Latino/a Americans, whereas Asian Americans reported higher impostor feelings. Minority status stress and impostor feelings were examined as predictors of mental health. Impostor feelings were stronger predictors of mental health than minority status stress. Counseling implications for ethnic minority students are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
