  • Microaggressions and self-esteem in emerging Asian American adults: The
           moderating role of racial socialization.
    • Abstract: The current study explores the moderating role of racial socialization in the relation between experiences of racial microaggressions and individual self-esteem and racial microaggressions and collective self-esteem for Asian American emerging adults. Asian American emerging adults (Mage = 23.83 years, SD = 2.83; N = 87) completed the Racial and Ethnic Microaggression Scale, the Perceived Racial Socialization Scale, the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, and the Collective Self-Esteem Scale. Results suggest a negative correlation between racial microaggression experiences with both individual self-esteem, r = −.34, p = .001 and public self-esteem, r = −.35, p = .001, a component of collective self-esteem. Depending on type and level of message, racial socialization may serve as a protective factor in racial microaggressions and self-esteem relations. Specifically, results suggest a significant interaction when promotion of mistrust was tested as a moderator of the microaggressions–individual self-esteem relation (b = .063, SE = .026), t(86) = 2.47, p = .015, where the relation between microaggressions and self-esteem was only significant at low and moderate levels of promotion of mistrust. Promotion of mistrust also moderated the microaggressions–private self-esteem relation (b = .045, SE = .02), t(86) = 2.30, p = .024. However, when promotion of mistrust moderated this relation, the relation was nonsignificant at all levels (low, moderate, and high). An examination of simple slopes suggests a change in the direction of the relation between microaggressions and private self-esteem from negative for low and moderate levels of promotion of mistrust to positive for high levels of promotion of mistrust.

  • An examination of attitudes toward gender and sexual violence among Asian
           Indians in the United States.
    • Abstract: Although issues of gender and violence among immigrant communities have gained some recognition, little is known about the role of cultural factors in attitudes toward gender and sexual violence among Asian Indians in the United States. This study investigated the relationship between ethnic identity and gender-related attitudes, attitudes toward sexual violence among Asian Indians, and whether gender and nativity (U.S.-born and foreign-born) predict attitudes toward gender and sexual violence. Participants were 175 Asian Indians living in the United States (127 women and 48 men; 128 born outside the United States and 47 born in the U.S). Measures of ethnic identity, gender role attitudes, sex role egalitarianism, and rape myth acceptance were administered online. Results indicated that stronger ethnic identity is associated with more traditional gender role attitudes and less sex role egalitarianism. Foreign-born Asian Indians and men reported more traditional gender role attitudes and less sex role egalitarianism when compared with U.S.-born participants and women, respectively. Contrary to expectations, ethnic identity, gender, and nativity did not predict rape myth acceptance. The findings call attention to the intertwined nature of ethnicity and gender, and to differences in ethnic identity and gender role socialization within Asian Indian subgroups.

  • Mental-illness stigma among Korean immigrants: Role of culture and
           destigmatization strategies.
    • Abstract: Mental-illness stigma is a well-documented problem in the Korean American immigrant community, and the need for antistigma programs is widely acknowledged. However, there is limited information on the ways in which this mental-health stigma is manifested in shaping views toward people with mental illness in the Korean-immigrant community—as well as on how to tackle the problem. To address the gap, this study used an exploratory design and 18 key-informant (KI) interviews were conducted via focus-group meetings with key leaders of the Korean-immigrant community in the San Francisco Bay Area. The study findings reveal stigmatized beliefs (e.g., being dangerous, out of control, and abnormal) and behaviors (e.g., social distance) toward people with mental illness, as well as cultural values that reinforce the stigma in the Korean-immigrant community. Our findings demonstrate an urgent need to ameliorate the stigma associated with mental illness. They also suggest that antistigma programs developed for Korean immigrant communities should emphasize community-based education that employs indirect approaches to preserve confidentiality and cultural values, as well as culturally and linguistically competent mental health services.

  • MMPI-2 profiles among Asian American missionary candidates: Gendered
           comparisons for ethnicity and population norms.
    • Abstract: There is currently a significant dearth of literature pertaining to the use of popular assessment instruments with ethnic minorities, including the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI)-2. We examined standard MMPI-2 Scale scores from a sample of 508 male (n = 43 Asian Americans) and 665 female (n = 71 Asian Americans) missionary candidates, comparing scale means between ethnicities by gender and, for the Asian American participants, with the gendered MMPI-2 normative samples. Our within-sample findings support the existing literature with regard to Asian Americans obtaining higher mean scores than Whites for scales F, L, and D (among women), and scale Si (both men and women), while comparison with the MMPI-2 norms supported these findings for scales L and D. Other within-sample clinical scale differences were also observed, but mean scores for all these scales were in the modal range and do not suggest an ethnically distinct interpretive strategy. Religious and candidacy influences were a plausible explanation for most of the obtained validity scale means. However, among Asian American women, L scale elevations were significantly higher and may reflect the continuing relevance of ethnic considerations in evaluating MMPI-2 profile validity among even fairly acculturated women. Thus, our findings both support some of the existent research and validate the need for further studies of specific Asian American subgroups.

  • Developing minority leaders: Key success factors of Asian Americans.
    • Abstract: Traditional leadership programs may not address the unique developmental needs of ethnic minorities. Whereas traditional leadership development is based on the assumptions, values, and behaviors of the Western mainstream ideals, our research uses a culture-specific approach to understand the unique needs of ethnic minority leaders, namely, Asian Americans. We focus on Asian Americans because they are least represented in U.S. management ranks, despite having the most education, training, and work experience. Our central research question is “What are the key success factors of Asian American leaders'” Qualitative interviews with 39 key informants (of East Asian descent, and 2 non-Asian Americans), ranging from middle managers to CEOs, at Fortune 500 companies, representing a variety of industries (accounting, aerospace, banking, digital imaging, energy, entertainment, food service, health care, medical, retail, technology, and telecommunication) identified 8 key success factors (i.e., qualities that promote upward mobility in the management hierarchy): cultural acumen, rules of success, leadership branding, communication, social decorum, leadership aspiration, career determinism, and cultural inclusion. Each success factor was defined, along with identification of its key issues, causes, consequences, and actions taken for cultivating the success factors. Results offer guidance for individual leadership development and for organizations to develop culture-specific leadership interventions that complement current mainstream training approaches.

  • “Annual Review of Asian American Psychology, 2015”: Correction
           to Kiang et al. (2016).
    • Abstract: Reports an error in "Annual Review of Asian American psychology, 2015" by Lisa Kiang, Charissa S. L. Cheah, Virginia W. Huynh, Yijie Wang and Hirokazu Yoshikawa (Asian American Journal of Psychology, 2016[Dec], Vol 7[4], 219-255). In the article, the last author’s name was misspelled. The online version of this article has been corrected. (The following abstract of the original article appeared in record 2016-57154-001.) As the seventh in the series, this annual review of research on Asian American psychology focused on the 332 articles that were identified by PsycINFO as being published in 2015 and that met the inclusion criteria established by prior reviews. Consistent with prior annual reviews, these articles were coded for 4 domain themes: study topic, methodology, participant characteristics (i.e., ethnicity), and age range/developmental period of the sample. In addition to presenting a brief summary of our coding results, we also present a more detailed synthesis and evaluation of empirical work centered around the distinctive status of Asian Americans as members of cultural, immigrant, and minority groups. Trends and patterns in the field and concrete suggestions for future research are discussed throughout the review. A discussion of limitations of our review is also provided.

  • Loss of face, intergenerational family conflict, and depression among
           Asian American and European American college students.
    • Abstract: Asian-American college students have reported higher scores of depression than European-American college students. This study examined the mediating effects of loss of face and intergenerational family conflict between race/ethnicity and depression and hypothesized that these variables would explain previously observed depression differences. The sample consisted of 488 undergraduate students: 209 self-identified as Asian American and 279 as European American. Participants filled out paper-and-pencil questionnaires. As predicted, the study found that Asian Americans reported higher scores on depression, loss of face, and intergenerational family conflict than European Americans. Loss of face explained more variance in depression among Asian Americans than European Americans. However, intergenerational family conflict explained equal levels of variance in depression for both groups. A structural equation model revealed that the relationship between race/ethnicity and depression was fully mediated by loss of face and intergenerational family conflict. In conclusion, using the disentangling approach, differences in depression scores between Asian-American and European-American college students can be explained by differences in culturally relevant constructs, such as loss of face and intergenerational family conflict.

  • Social anxiety in Asian Americans: Integrating personality and cultural
    • Abstract: The purpose of this study was to obtain a more comprehensive understanding of social anxiety in Asian Americans by integrating personality and cultural factors that might affect social anxiety in this population. Asian American adults (N = 255) responded to an online survey, in which they completed measures of the Big Five traits (BFI; Benet-Martínez & John, 1998), Bicultural Identity Integration (BIIS-1; Benet-Martínez & Haritatos, 2005), acculturation and enculturation (AAMAS; Chung, Kim, & Abreu, 2004), and social anxiety (SIAS; Mattick & Clarke, 1998). As hypothesized, the acculturation/enculturation and BII constructs (BII-Conflict and BII-Distance) were fairly independent. When only cultural variables were considered, acculturation and BII-Conflict were comparable predictors of social anxiety. However, only BII-Conflict, and not BII-Distance or acculturation/enculturation, contributed incremental prediction of social anxiety beyond the Big Five traits. An integrated model—in which selected Big Five traits predicted acculturation/enculturation and BII, which, in turn, predicted social anxiety—fit the data well. In this model, Neuroticism had both a direct and indirect effect via BII-Conflict on social anxiety, Extraversion had only a direct effect on social anxiety, and Extraversion and Openness to Experience predicted some of the cultural variables. Overall, the findings support the value of integrating personality and cultural constructs in predicting social anxiety in Asian Americans.

  • Parenting variables associated with growth mindset: An examination of
           three Chinese-heritage samples.
    • Abstract: An incremental theory of intelligence (TOI), the belief that intelligence is malleable and can be improved through effort, is associated with children’s academic achievement, mastery goals, and overall psychological well-being. Although the positive impact of TOI is well established, less is known about socialization factors such as parenting that foster these orientations. We posited that both autonomy support (AS) and psychological control (PC) may promote incremental TOI among Chinese heritage fourth- to fifth-grade children and their mothers where socialization has largely been characterized as low in AS and high in PC. However, we examined the possibility that these associations may differ across contexts within the Chinese Diaspora (Beijing, Hong Kong, and Los Angeles) as child rearing evolves as a function of rapid social change and immigration. A multiple-group structural equation model revealed a positive association between child-report of maternal PC and child incremental TOI across all three samples (βBJ = .37, p < .001; βHK = .17, p < .05; βLA = .26, p < .01) and a positive association between child-report of maternal AS and incremental TOI in Hong Kong only (βHK = .41, p < .001). Consistent with past studies, children’s perceptions of parenting were more proximal to child beliefs than mothers’ reports of their own behaviors. These results are discussed in connection with the literature on the dynamic role of culture in shaping parenting and associated developmental outcomes in Asian and Asian American contexts.

  • Reciprocal relations between social self-efficacy and loneliness among
           Chinese international students.
    • Abstract: Among international students in the United States, those with a Chinese cultural heritage (e.g., students from China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong) now constitute the largest group, representing over a 3rd of all such students. However, relatively little is known about the psychosocial factors that may predict successful transition into the United States. As such, independent of the effects of perceived English proficiency and social isolation, the present study assessed the relations between social self-efficacy and loneliness among Chinese international students in a 3-wave cross-lagged study (i.e., timeline ranging from prearrival to their 2nd semester in the United States). Their associations with social isolation and sources of friendship (i.e., U.S. friends, Chinese friends, or international friends) were also examined. Participants were 409 Chinese international students (57% female) enrolled in universities across the United States. Findings revealed bidirectional relations between social self-efficacy and loneliness across all 3 time points. Furthermore, we found that those with higher levels of social self-efficacy had a proportionally higher number of American friends during their 1st semester in the United States. In other words, having perceived close friendships with Americans may be an important factor associated with the social adjustment of Chinese international students. Implications of these findings are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)
