Psychological Adaptation, Marital Satisfaction, and Academic Self-Efficacy of International Students
Bulgan, Gökçe; Çiftçi, Ayse
Journal of International Students, v7 n3 p687-702 2017
The authors investigated marital satisfaction and academic self-efficacy in relation to psychological adaptation (i.e., psychological well-being, life satisfaction) in a sample of 198 married international students. Results of multiple regression analyses indicated that marital satisfaction and academic self-efficacy accounted for 45.9% of variance in psychological well-being and 25.8% of variance in life satisfaction scores. Based on the results, the differences between cognitive and emotion oriented processes during psychological adaptation were explained. The authors discuss implications for programs with international students and mental health professionals working in university campuses.
