Relationship of Ethnic Identity, Acculturation, and Psychological Well-Being among Chinese, Japanese, and Korean Americans
Chae, Mark H.; Foley, Pamela F.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n4 p466-476 Fall 2010
The current investigation examined the relationship of ethnic identity, acculturation, and psychological functioning among 334 Chinese, Japanese, and Korean American participants. Multiple regression analyses revealed that ethnic identity and acculturation differentially predicted well-being on the basis of ethnic group membership. Results also indicated that a bicultural worldview was positively associated with psychological well-being. Implications for counseling and recommendations for future research are discussed.
