Impact of Stressors on Drinking Behaviors of Second-Generation Black Emerging Adults
Experts conducted a multi-wave cross-sectional study examining the relationship between certain stressors and high risk drinking behaviors in second-generation Black emerging adult U.S. college students. Acculturative stress was identified as the element that accounted for the most significant variance in risky drinking behaviors beyond other stressors in the participants. The results reinforce the need for a deeper understanding of acculturative stress in second-generation Black emerging adults and implications for future prevention research.
The study “The Role of Minority Stress in Second-Generation Black Emerging Adult College Students' High-Risk Drinking Behaviors,” is published in Cultural Diversity & Ethnic Minority Psychology. The National Institute on Drug supported this research effort.
