An Initial Model of Latina Achievement: Acculturation, Biculturalism, and Achieving Styles.
Gomez, Maria J.; Fassinger, Ruth E.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v41 n2 p205-15 Apr 1994
Investigated relationship between acculturation and achieving styles for 244 undergraduate Latinas. Acculturation predicted use of six of nine achieving styles. Hispanicism was positively related to six styles, whereas Americanism was related to four styles. The more bicultural, wider the repertoire of achieving styles. Achieving styles differed in terms of country of origin but not in terms of race. (Author/NB)
