Book Title: Personal Persistence, Identity Development, and Suicide

Author: Michael J. Chandler, Christopher E. Lalonde, Bryan W. Sokol and Darcy Hallett

Book Description:

In the modern era of global transformations, the preservation of cultural continuity becomes a challenging task for minority ethnic groups. In particular, the challenge becomes greater for the minority youth if their cultures are on the verge of extinction. Authors in this book made contributions to understanding the issues indigenous youths face in their identity development. More importantly, this book played an instrumental role in developing my interest in helping young people cultivate personal self-preservation skills and exploring ways to carry local diversity in the face of globalization.
