Title
Expectations and Acculturation : Further Unpacking of Adjustment Mechanisms within the Russian-speaking Community in Montreal
Abstract
The author point out that recent years have witnessed a significant growth in the Russian-speaking community in Montreal. However, they contend, little is currently known about the predictors of psychological adjustment in immigrants from the Former Soviet Union. The authors explore the expectations that this group of immigrants (N = 271) hoped to fulfill in their adopted society, the extent to which these expectations have been fulfilled, and the impact of fulfilled expectations on psychological adjustment. They found that the degree of fulfilled expectations was significantly associated with better psychological adjustment independent of personality traits, language proficiency, and acculturation.
