Adolescents’ Resilience through Action and Culture (ARAC)

Resilience

ARAC is a collaborative study with Dr. Geri Donenberg in Psychiatry and Public Health that investigates how resilience occurs among African American male adolescents involved in the juvenile justice system. This study examines how different types of discrimination impact comorbity (mental health, substance use, and risky sexual behavior) and positive development (self-esteem and social competence), and addresses the protective and promotive value of youth’s coping and cultural resources on adjustment.
