Questions related to Acculturation
Hello dear readers,
I am doing my thesis about Acculturation strategies and the Well-being of immigrants. I was wondering if you tell me your idea about the most recent Acculturation strategies questionnaire.
I am already familiar with Berry's model. I want to make sure if there are any other new refines frequently used in studies.
Thank you so much
International students' acculturative stress scale (ASSIS) consists of 36 items and 7 subclasses.
The focus of the research is to determine the prevalence among the sample population. The scoring of the scale ranges from 36 to 180 with a Likert scale of 1 to 5 for each question and it is observed that the higher the score higher is the stress and vice versa.
Since these questionnaires do not have a common breakpoint for low and high-stress levels, can we rank low, moderate, and high levels using an interquartile range (IQR)?
I know there are lots of research out there talking about how more acculturated is related to lesser stress, but I wonder if there's any research out there find other way around?
I'm struggling to find literature that can answer this seemingly straightforward question.
It seems apparent that for someone trying to integrate themselves into a new culture/society, learning the language is necessary.
I'm wondering however if there have ever been studies that have measured the degree to which speaking and reading/writing are differentially correlated with the degree of cultural integration?
Suppose a new immigrant had limited time/resources, and could either spend their time trying to speak to as many people as possible, or read as many texts as possible. Which one should they prioritize?
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
I'm looking for a questionnaire or survey the focuses on "reason for migration". I know there are questionnaires that include "reason for migration" items, but they tend to be focused on acculturation or some form of trauma.
In some countries around the world, we have observed that people living in difficult regions have managed to gain the upper hand over other people blessed by nature.
As I am interested in any (social scientist's) research on missionaries I would like to gain insights in a "rhetorical analysis" about acculturation of missionaries. Thanks.
My current research aims to identify the mental health and wellbeing needs of Indian International Students in American Institutes of Higher Learning. The research will result in creating prototypes of a culturally relevant support system for the said demography. I have been looking for qualitative research to understand the needs of Indian International Students, however, there have been quantitative studies, and very limited qualitative studies that do not generalise all students as international students. It would be helpful to learn about other resources, which highlight the situation and exclusively talk about the challenges of Indian International students.
I am a second year master student and I am preparing the proposal for my upcoming master thesis in the spring semester. My topic is the perception of immigrant about the integration process and challenges they face in their path to integration in Sweden. I planning to conduct a qualitative research design, particularly I want to undertake a case study. I know the fact that, in qualitative research, including theoretical background in your proposal is very challenging before you collect your data. However I am instructed to do so. So please can any one help me to find out theories related to integration of immigrant to mainstream society. I was thinking that I can use assimilation and multiculturalism as my theories but I am not sure whether they are concepts or theories. I am also thinking if I can use Acculturation model as theoretical background. Please let me hear form your side. thanks
How does acculturation happen in children?
what are the differences of acculturation between adults and children?
How does acculturation of children work in learning a foreign language?
I am trying to find some literature on the relation between consumption, identity and migration in order to improve a research proposal. So, I would like to ask, does anyone have any suggestions regarding the effects of migration on identity through consumption? Is there any suggestion or any research on that issue?
I need to find a way to assess tools, practices, phenomenons that contribute to integration processes, assessed by the French nationals in Colombia. Since theory regarding this subject is very broad, I do not know where to start and my resources to search are very limited. Does anyone has recommendations or ideas?
I would like to manipulate identity in a n experiment and assess outcomes of acculturation and well-being. If anyone has any manipulations for identity, I would appreciate it if you would share these with me.
I am interested in a measure for globalization-based acculturation that can be used among an indigenous population. Have there been any attempts to develop such a scale measuring acculturation strategies?
I am doing research on the topic regarding the acculturative stress level of adjustment and coping strategies of International students in Pakistani universities. Any kind of help regarding the scales or questionnaires will be appreciated.
The EAAM is a 29-item self-report inventory,
which measures four dimensions of acculturation outlined
by Berry (13): assimilation (8 items), separation(7 items), integration (5 items), and marginalization
(9 items) (see Table I). Attitudinal and behavioral
facets of social interaction and communication styles
(both competency and ease/comfort in communicating)
in various settings were assessed (1). Items are
scored using a 7-point Likert-type scale (strongly disagree,
disagree, disagree somewhat, neutral, agree
somewhat, agree, agree strongly). The total score
is derived by summing reverse- and positive-scored
Models/articles about the mediator role of acculturative stress on the relationship between perceived discrimination and psychological distress ?
Mycolleague and I are trying to study acculturation by Indian consumers to a global consumer culture. The scale is already identified. Our question is how and whether it is possible to cross validate the scale and its applicability in an indian consumer context? The scale is already validated in 08 countries.
It would be interesting to be able to compare the colonial applied processes of education and acculturation in Africa for European countries: England, France, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, Spain.
Can anybody please suggest me any study examining the relations between ethnic identity components (i. e., commmitment, exploration) and acculturative stress? I prefer studies focusing on early, middle and late adolescents but also suggestions regarding emerging adults or adults are welcome.
I would like to use it to assess the participant´s acculturative attitudes in my study. But I am having problems finding it.
Preferably the continuous measures would relate to mental health, physical health, substance use, acculturation, etc. but other measures used in migration research are welcome.
In Puerto Rico IPV has seemed to increase. I would like to know if there is a connection between acculturation and the influence of the political relationship between Puerto Rico and the United States is a factor.
I am looking for an instrument to measure acculturative stress among Iranian immigrant couples who at least one of the couples is post-graduate student in Malaysia. It should be included all aspects of this risk factor, such as the death or illness of family members in absence of them in Iran, financial problems, academic problems, religious freedom problems, health problems, weather problem (such as the danger of Dangi), job problem, and problems with training the children in a strange environment/culture. Although I already found some, they don't sound to be suitable for my research. Would you please give me some help? Anyone knows any acculturative stress scale?
Background to this question is this: In the last years I did a qualitative study about intercultural experiences of German Protestant missionaries. In analyzing the narratives of the missionaries I came to the conclusion that not formal, but informal learning has a huge impact on the effectiveness of missionaries inculturation. As a trained social scientist with little theological education I am open to any comment and from any disciplinary background. So far, my focus was on the cultural psychological issues regarding missionary assignements and feel that it is time to think outside the box. Many thanks in advance
