Importance of Ethnic identity

For many people, ethnic identity is an important part of their sense of self. Jean Phinney (1992) has developed a measure of ethnic identity that is relevant to diverse ethnic groups. This questionnaire enables students to think about the importance of ethnic identity in their own lives. Review Phinney’s (1992) questionnaire.
