Do Racial Differences in Coping Resources Explain the Black-White Paradox in Mental Health? A Test of Multiple Mechanisms

Posted: 4/26/2021 (CSDE Seminar Series)

At the CSDE seminar on April 30th, Dr. Patricia Louie will present “Do Racial Differences in Coping Resources Explain the Black-White Paradox in Mental Health? A Test of Multiple Mechanisms”. CSDE Affiliate Amelia Gavin will moderate the discussion. Dr. Louie will discuss whether Black Americans have higher levels of self-esteem, social support, religious attendance, and divine control than White Americans, and whether these resources in turn explain the Black-White paradox in mental health. Dr. Louie is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Washington. Her research examines the role that social factors play in driving racial disparities in physical and mental health.
