Abstract

In this study, we studied acculturation, ethnic identity, emotional well-being, and demographic characteristics of Asian American and Asian international students. The results indicated that Asian American students scored higher on acculturation and ethnic identity than Asian international students, but the two groups did not differ in emotional well-being. Asian American students’ emotional well-being was predicted by their ethnic identity, but not by acculturation. A moderate, negative relationship was found between acculturation and ethnic identity for both Asian American and Asian international students.

摘要

本文探討了美國的亞裔美籍學生與亞裔外國學生在民族認同程度、涵化水平和心理健康狀況上的差異。研究結果顯示,亞裔美籍學生在涵化水平和民族認同程度兩方面均較亞裔外國學生為高,但兩組學生的心理健康狀況沒有差別。研究又發現,亞裔美籍學生的民族認同程度能預測他們的心理健康狀況,但他們的涵化水平則沒有這種預測能力。此外,無論是亞裔美籍學生還是亞裔外國學生,他們的涵化水平和民族認同程度均呈輕微的反比。
