Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Collective self-esteem and coping strategies among Vietnamese American adolescents
by Alvarado, Desery, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 49; 1499133
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this secondary data analysis study was to examine the collective self-esteem and coping strategies of Vietnamese American adolescents. Respondents were identified and recruited through the Union of Vietnamese Student Association of Southern California located in Orange County, California. A self-administered questionnaire, with parental consent, was given to 42 females and 36 males who attended a public high school in Orange County. A significant positive correlation was found between collective self-esteem and instrumental support and significant negative correlations were found between collective self-esteem and emotional support, disengagement, and venting. Implications for social work practice and policy were addressed.
