They collected data among 2,485 students in 13 countries and they found that SGMs scored significantly lower on subjective well-being when compared to non-SGMs and SGMs scored significantly higher on maladaptive ER strategies, and significantly lower on adaptive ER strategies compared to non-SGMs.

Dr. Snežana Stupar-Rutenfrans and UCR alumnus, Keiji (Aparajith) Dinesh, are currently working on a follow-up study and new data-collection in SGMs where they are focusing on the relationship between microaggressions, perceived discrimination, emotional regulation and well-being in the Netherlands, US, and Turkey. If you would like to collaborate or to receive more info on this new project, please contact dr. Snežana Stupar-Rutenfrans.
