" Family Obligation and Assistance among Adolescents from Asian and Latin American Backgrounds "

Dr. Fuligni will present a program of research that has investigated the extent to which adolescents from different ethnic and immigrant backgrounds provide support and assistance to their families of origin.  Using findings obtained from questionnaires, in-depth interviews, and daily diary techniques, the presentation will focus on how ethnic background, immigrant status, and economic resources shape adolescents' psychological sense of obligation to the family as well as the different ways in which that obligation gets fulfilled on a daily basis.  The implications of family obligation and assistance for other aspects of adolescent development will be highlighted.
