The Role of Ethnic-Racial Identity Dissociation on the Association Between Appropriated Racial Oppression and Sleep Problems
College students of color disproportionally experience sleep problems. Race-related sociocultural factors may influence sleep problems experienced among college students of color. The present study examined the association between appropriated racial oppression and sleep problems. In addition, the moderating role of ethnic-racial identity dissociation in the association between appropriated racial oppression and sleep problems was examined. Participants were 1st-year college students of color (N = 349) recruited from a medium-sized, private, predominantly White institution in the Northeastern US. Measures of appropriated racial oppression, ethnic-racial identity dissociation, nighttime disturbances, daytime dysfunction, and daytime sleepiness were assessed. Using multiple linear regression, results indicated that appropriated racial oppression was associated with higher levels of nighttime disturbances among college students of color with higher levels of ethnic-racial identity dissociation. Implications for college students of color attending predominantly White institutions and future directions for research are discussed.
