Acculturation, Competence, and Mental Health among South Asian Students in the United States
Rahman, Omar; Rollock, David
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v32 n3 p130 Jul 2004
Among 199 South Asian international students in the United States, higher levels of depressive symptoms were predicted by higher perceived prejudice and lower self-reported competence in work, personal/social efficacy, and intracultural behaviors. Relationships among the predictors and depressive symptoms differed by gender. Implications for theory, research, and mental health interventions are discussed.
