Resilience from Childhood Stressors: The Role of Cultural Resilience, Ethnic Identity, and Gender Identity

Caroline S. Clauss-Ehlers, Ph.D., Ya-Ting T. Yang, M.A. and Wan-Chun J. Chen, M.A.

This study examined the potential influence of cultural resilience, ethnic identity, and gender identity on resilience processes across diverse racial/ethnic groups of young women. A sample of 200 women who attended a large state university were studied, of whom 50 self-identified as White, 50 as African American, 50 as Asian or Asian American, and 50 as Latina. Results indicated significant racial/ethnic differences in childhood stressors experienced by the women such that African American, Asian/Asian American, and Latina women reported more overall childhood stressors and more stress associated with racism and sexism than their White counterparts. Furthermore, ethnic identity search and an androgynous gender identity contributed to greater resilience. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
