Vietnamese Youth Stress and Coping Study (Adolescents Coping with Everyday Stress, ACES)
Project Leader: Nolan Zane
Project Coordinator: Jennifer Manongdo
This is a multi-site collaboration of Vanderbilt University, UCLA, and UC Davis. This project longitudinally follows a sample of adolescents in Southern California, Northern California, and Vietnam. The overall aim is to increase our understanding of how culture and cultural factors are related to human behavioral and emotional functioning, with a particular focus on the “stress – coping – symptom manifestation” system, with an ultimate goal of identifying cultural factors that could be useful for informing culturally specific interventions.
