Unique and Joint Effects of Sexual and Racial Harassment on College Students' Well-Being
Additional Document Info
This study examined the sexual harassment (SH) and racial harassment (RH) experiences of Asian, Black, multiracial, and White male and female college students (N = 2,009). Research questions were (a) Do sex and race influence the frequency of SH and RH; (b) Do SH and RH have unique, additive, and=or interactive effects on psychological outcomes; and (c) Do sex and race moderate the relationship between SH=RH and psychological well-being? Analyses indicated that SH=RH frequency varied as a result of one's combined sex-race identity, SH=RH had individual, additive, and interactive effects on psychological well-being, and both sex and race moderate the relationships between harassment and well-being. Further, three-way interactions of sex, race, and harassment type were found for the prediction of wellbeing indicators. Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
