Our Online Presence Is Being Constructed


for a study investigating mental health symptoms related to racism-related stress

The purpose of this research is to investigate the following:

  • the relationships between race-based traumatic stress (RBTS) and reported symptoms of posttraumatic growth (PTG), depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder;

  • and if the relationships between RBTS and the other factors are affected by mindfulness, the practice of yoga, and the race of the teachers and participants in mindfulness practices.


Eligible participants who complete all surveys will receive access to two online yoga classes (valued at $50) or, for eligible North Carolina Central University students, extra credit for one psychology department course upon completion of all questionnaires. An alternate extra credit assignment of equal effort will be offered to NCCU students in eligible psychology department courses who do not wish to participate or do not meet the eligibility criteria for the study.


The duration needed to complete all questionnaires is an expected time of 25-40 minutes.
