About this book

This handbook examines the effects and influences on child and youth development of prejudice, discrimination, and inequity as well as other critical contexts, including implicit bias, explicit racism, post immigration processes, social policies, parenting and media influences. It traces the impact of bias and discrimination on children, from infancy through emerging adulthood with implications for later years. The handbook explores ways in which the expanding social, economic, and racial inequities in society are linked to increases in negative outcomes for children through exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Chapters examine a range of ACEs – low income, separation/divorce, family substance abuse and mental illness, exposure to neighborhood and/or domestic violence, parental incarceration, immigration and displacement, and parent loss through death. Chapters also discuss discrimination and prejudice within the adverse experiences of African American, Asian American, European American, Latino, Native American, Arab American, and Sikh as well as LGBTQ youth and non-binary children.  Additionally, the handbook elevates dynamic aspects of resilience, adjustment, and the daily triumphs of children and youth faced with issues related to prejudice and differential treatment.

Topics featured in the Handbook include:

  • The intergenerational transmission of protective parent responses to historical trauma.
  • The emotional impact of the acting-white accusation.
  • DREAMers and their experience growing up undocumented in the USA.
  • Online racial discrimination and its relation to mental health and academic outcomes.
  • Teaching strategies for preventing bigoted behavior in class.
  • Emerging areas such as sociopolitical issues, gender prejudice, and dating violence.

The Handbook of Children and Prejudice is a must-have resource for researchers, graduate students, clinicians, therapists, and other professionals in clinical child and school psychology, social work, public health, developmental psychology, pediatrics, family studies, juvenile justice, child and adolescent psychiatry, and educational psychology.

Deborah J. Johnson, Ph.D. is professor of Human Development and Family Studies and is also Director of the Diversity Research Network, a faculty serving entity under the auspices of Michigan State University’s Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives. Her research explores racially and culturally related development, parental racial socialization and coping, cultural adjustment from early childhood through emerging adulthood, in both domestic and international children and youth. Current work focuses on the influence of early bias preparation and coping at the intersection of gender and race among African American and Latina College women, and the impact on their well-being and school performance. Recent books, address the global rights of children and private/charter school experiences of African American children. Additionally, she studies cultural adjustment and identity development among unaccompanied Sudanese refugee minors and majors, and in international settings. Further  explorations emphasize positive youth development and identity reformation of immigrant and refugee groups.

Desiree Baolian Qin, Ed.D.,  is Associate Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Michigan State University. Her research, funded by the William T Grant Foundation and the Spencer Foundation, focuses on understanding how immigration, culture, gender, and ecological contexts, especially family, impact adolescent and emerging adult development. Drawing on mostly mixed-method, longitudinal data, He er research has highlighted many nuanced, complex family processes that have been overlooked in Asian immigrant families, especially struggle in parent-child relations, e.g., emotional alienation, parent-child conflicts, communication challenges, and parent-child separation. Her findings also point to negative effects of tiger parenting in child/adolescent development. Dr. Qin’s most recent project examines academic and psychosocial adaptation challenges of Chinese undergraduate students.

Francisco A. Villarruel, Ph.D. is Professor and  Associate Chair for Education in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies, and  a University Outreach and Engagement Senior Fellow at Michigan State University.  He is a founding faculty member of the GPI-Youth Development program - an online asynchronous master’s program for prospective youth professionals. Dr. Villarruel has worked with numerous communities, state, and federal agencies to address the involvement of Latino youth in juvenile justice systems programs. He serves on the Board of Directors for the Campaign for Youth Justice and is also working with colleagues across the nation to establish The Alianza for Latino Youth Justice – a consortium of practitioners, advocates, funders, families and scholars that seek to engage in culturally relevant practices to address the needs of Latino youth secure placements.
