Research output: Contribution to conference (non-published works)Abstract


The objective of this study was to investigate psychosocial factors of depression
among Asian college students. We predicted that psychosocial factors would
explain the differences between male and female American Asian college
students with depression at a university in USA. We explored depression in a
representative, randomly selected sample of Asian American college students.
The predictors included family conflict, cross-cultural gender role attitudes, and
racism-related stress. Approximately one-fourth of the sample had some degree
of depression. Analyses revealed moderate associations between the predictors
and depression. Study findings have implications for mental health assessment
and intervention services
