The Role of Enculturation and Acculturation on Latina College Student Distress Academic Article uri icon


  • This study investigated the relationship of acculturation, enculturation, and White attitudinal marginalization with distress among 214 Latina college students. Results showed that 12% of the variance in perceived distress was accounted for by all predictor variables with only behavioral enculturation and White attitudinal marginalization being statistically significant predictors. Implications for future research are discussed.
