Predictors of Familial Acculturative Stress in Asian American College Students
Castillo, Linda G.; Zahn, Marion P.; Cano, Miguel A.
Journal of College Counseling, v15 n1 p52-64 April 2012
The authors examined the predictors of familial acculturative stress in 85 Asian American college students. Participants were primarily 1st- and 2nd-generation U.S. citizens. Results showed that perceived acculturative family conflict and family intragroup marginalization were related to higher levels of familial acculturative stress for participants. Family intragroup marginalization accounted for a statistically significant proportion of the variance in familial acculturative stress after all variables were controlled. The findings emphasize the need to recognize culture-specific stressors of college students. Implications for college counselors are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
