Abstract

Acculturative stress is the psychological impact of adaptation to a new culture. For Hispanics who come to the United States, there are a number of significant stressors that are likely to be pervasive, intense, and lifelong. Counselors need to learn the reality of the Hispanic immigrants and help them adapt to these stressors. This article defines and describes these aspects of acculturative stress.
