Past studies have begun to call scholarly attention to the effect of individual factors such as trait anxiety on coping with racial discrimination as well as the importance of studying specific coping strategies. This poster presents an experimental study on examining the moderating role of trait anxiety in evaluating the effectiveness of two coping strategies (confronting vs. passive acceptance) for coping with racial discrimination. Implications for counselors and researchers will be provided during the presentation.
