Brief Survey About Racial Discrimination Experiences

<p> This study seeks to learn more about perceived racial discrimination in currently enrolled college students - the survey can be accessed online anytime from a computer, tablet, or mobile device.&nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> Current empirical literature has identified negative mental health effects associated with experiencing discrimination; however, the internalized process, known as perceived discrimination, is an interpretation of one’s place in society and has been associated with experiencing depression and anxiety symptoms, over and above that of objective discrimination alone. Recent political attacks on marginalized groups have prompted a necessary reexamination of the negative effects associated with perceived discrimination. Furthermore, protective factors have yet to be agreed upon in the literature. Therefore, the proposed study seeks to examine attachment style, an individual’s ability to seek out comfort from others in times of distress, as a moderator in the relationship between perceived discrimination and depression and anxiety symptomology. The aim of the proposed study is to actively maintain the dialogue about the effects of discrimination within our society, as well as to elucidate the role of attachment as a protective factor, which could serve to improve upon the current literature.</p>
