The Relationship of Chicano Acculturation to Self-Report Anxiety and Attitudes toward Counseling and Psychotherapy.
Warren, Lynda W.; And Others
Chicanos comprise the second largest and yet least acculturated minority in this country. Existing literature suggests that acculturation is stressful for Chicanos because they are caught between two cultures with frequently conflicting values and role demands. However, current research indicates that Chicanos strikingly underutilize mental health facilities. This study hypothesized that the more acculturated Chicanos would report more manifest anxiety and more favorable attitudes towards psychotherapy than the less acculturated Chicanos. Findings suggest that young or highly acculturated Chicanos may be experiencing more role conflict than their male counterparts. (Author/MML)
