What Changes, What Remains the Same, and What Affects Acculturative Change in Cuban Immigrant Families.
Szapocznik, Jose; And Others
This paper discusses individual and interfamilial processes affecting Cuban immigrant families with adolescent children. Data utilized include the results of various studies on psychological and behavioral changes related to acculturation. It is held that rate of acculturation is a function of many variables, including age, sex, and length of exposure to the host culture. Clinical variables, such as intergenerational conflict in Cuban families, are also discussed as they affect the acculturation of adolescent children. It is speculated that in families in which adolescent males exhibit an accelerated rate of acculturation, the adolescents may be presenting an acting out psychological profile. (Author/GC)
