Concealable Stigmatized Identities Outcomes Model (CSI-Outcomes Model)


I contributed to the development of the CSI-Outcomes Model in collaboration with Dr. Diane Quinn. The CSI-Outcomes Model differentiates between two components of concealable stigmatized identities, including valenced content and magnitude, which we theorize are important for determining the impact of a concealable stigmatized identity on psychological, physical, and behavioral health outcomes.
