Attachment, Coping, Acculturative Stress, and Quality of Life among Haitian Immigrants
Belizaire, Lonette S.; Fuertes, Jairo N.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n1 p89-97 Win 2011
This study investigated the relationship between attachment, coping, acculturative stress, and quality of life (QOL) in a sample of Haitian immigrants in the United States. Results indicated that an increase in years living in the United States and greater anxiety attachment were negatively associated with QOL and that higher levels of adaptive coping were associated with higher QOL and lower levels of acculturative stress. Implications for counseling and recommendations for future research are discussed.
