Abstract

The current thesis project investigated relationships among family ethnic cultural socialization, self-esteem, phenotype characteristics, and ethnic identity in an ethnic minority college student sample. Consistent with previous research, family ethnic cultural socialization was found to be associated with ethnic identity and self-esteem. Two of the three components of ethnic identity examined were associated with self-esteem. It was found that the relationship between family ethnic cultural socialization and self-esteem was mediated by ethnic identity. Analyses that examined phenotype characteristics as moderators in the relationship between family ethnic cultural socialization and ethnic identity did not reveal significant results.
