Explorations in Ethnic Studies
Masayuki Sato's article Concept of Shame and the Mental Health of Pacific Asian Americans serves the vital function of raising issues as the necessary first step in seeking answers. Sato has convincingly related some attributes of Pacific Asian Americans (eg., high scholastic achievement, low utilization of mental health services and underemployment) to the need to avoid shame or "save face."
