Title

Health, Identities, and Stress

Abstract

In many ways identities can alter stress processes leading to differential health outcomes; and, less studied, identities also develop as the outcome of stress and health behavior. Stressors and the meaning of those stressors are often affiliated with specific identities. Therefore, identities also provide social support and buffering resources to reduce the stress processes on health outcomes.
