· What stories did you grow up with? These could be from books, TV shows, movies, or another source.
· How did these stories influence your perceptions of yourself and of the world?
· Did you identify with the background of the main characters or were they from a different background than you? How did this affect you?
· As an adult, what stories do you identify with?
· How are these stories similar to and different from the ones you grew up with? How might this relate to your exposure to and understanding of diversity?
· Are there certain areas of the world or certain people about whom you only have a single story? (Think long and hard before saying that you don’t have a single story about anyone. How likely is this to be the case?)
· What role does diversity play in your workplace, social life, and/or education?

To begin, go to the Project Implicit website (
). Take the Age IAT and make a note of how you score and what percentage of IAT takers fall into the same category that you do. If you do not fall into the most common group, make a note of what that one is, as well. If you are unable to complete the IAT for any reason, please click 


 for a set of sample results you can use for this discussion.

Then, using concepts and information from at least two of the required readings, answer the following questions:
· What was the most common result on the Age IAT? Were you surprised by this? Why or why not?
· What are some of the stereotypes or single stories that people in our culture have about older Americans? For example, how often do you see older people represented on TV or in the movies? How might this relate to implicit or unconscious bias?
· How does age diversity benefit workplaces, families, and communities? How would you suggest businesses go about eliminating age-related bias?

Key findings (200 words)

This article presents findings from a study that examined the issue of substance use in bi/multiracial youth. The authors suggest that bi/multiracial youth participate in substance use more frequently than monoracial youth. The study had several significant findings. Bi/multiracial youth engaged in higher use of tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, and other illicit drugs more so than other youth of color. They also engage in higher levels of marijuana use than white youth. However, findings also revealed that bi/multiracial youth were involved with more psychosocial protectors – such as being raised with a stronger anti-drug message and having parents more involved in their lives. Many also experienced lower levels of psychosocial risk than monoracial youth, such as peer pressure.

The authors suggest several important implications from these findings, especially in terms of designing prevention and intervention efforts aimed at bi/multiracial youth to address substance abuse. These implications take on increased importance as the population of bi/multiracial youth has been increasing significantly over time. They also suggest that these programs focus on enhancing psychosocial protections for these youth, rather than only focusing on protective factors. The authors conclude by mentioning two model programs as being exemplary with this approach – The Strong African American Families Program, and Communities That Care.

My topic is on substance use among adolescents. This article addresses several issues that are relevant to my topic from a psychological viewpoint, including psychosocial protections and risks in the context of substance use. It also discusses a population that has been less focused on in many of the articles I have read. Since the population of bi/multiracial youth is increasing in society
