Future Orientation in Cultural Transition: Acculturation Strategies of Youth from Three Minority Groups in Israel
Seginer, Rachel; Mahajna, Sami
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n160 p31-43 Sum 2018
Using adolescents' narratives and survey data presented in earlier studies, we draw upon Berry's model of four acculturation strategies (2015) to examine adolescents' narratives regarding the future orientation domains of education-and-career and marriage-and-family (Seginer, 2009) by three groups of nonimmigrant minority adolescents in Israel: Muslim, Druze, and ultra-Orthodox Jewish. The narratives of adolescents from the three communities studied here illustrate modified assimilation for education-and-career and separation for marriage-and-family, indicating both cultural transition and continuity. Quantitative analyses mapped domain-specific links from education-and-career and marriage-and-family to adolescents' academic achievement.
