Gender differences in cross-cultural adaptation styles of immigrant youths from the former U.S.S.R. in Israel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Examining the issue of social adjustment among high school seniors who had immigrated from the former Soviet Union as early adolescents, this study probes the longterm effects of these youths' cross-cultural migration. It considers gender-based differences in their styles of adaptation, focusing on the following four topics: (a) their perceptions of the social role of the school in bringing new immigrants and veteran or native Israelis closer together, (b) attitudes toward friendship with same- and host-culture peers, (c) views on dating same- and host-culture partners (in heterosexual relationships), and (d) their notions of a desirable style of accommodation.
