The Role of Language, Parents, and Peers in Ethnic Identity among Adolescents in Immigrant Families.
Phinney, Jean S.; Romero, Irma; Nava, Monica; Huang, Dan
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v30 n2 p135-53 Apr 2001
Surveyed adolescents and parents from 81 Armenian, 47 Vietnamese, and 88 Mexican families. Adolescents completed measures of ethnic language proficiency, peer social interaction, and ethnic identity, while parents completed a measure of support for cultural maintenance. Across all groups, ethnic language proficiency and in-group peer interaction predicted ethnic identity, but a separate model was required for each ethnic group. (SLD)
