Socio-Psychological Predictors of Acculturative Stress among Latino Adults.
Miranda, Alexis O.; Matheny, Kenneth B.
Journal of Mental Health Counseling, v22 n4 p306-17 Oct 2000
A random sample (N=197) of two social service agencies completed a questionnaire to assess family cohesion and adaptability, acculturation, acculturative stress, and coping-resources effectiveness among Latino adults. The results suggest that acculturative stress experienced by Latinos relates to the efficacy of stress-coping resources, degree of acculturation, cohesion of the family, language use, and length of residence in the United States.
