The relationship between stress and psychological health is longstanding. However, little is known regarding the specific and unique ways in which African American and Caribbean women experience and cope with stress. Independence, perseverance, and caretaking among Black women have forged a cultural identity that many refer to as the Strong Black Woman. This presentation will provide an overview of the role of strength modeled by women of African American and Caribbean ethnicity, as well as illustrate its influence on how women perceive and cope with stress.
