Although many researchers agree on a general definition of acculturation, the conceptualization and measurement of acculturation remain controversial. To address the issues, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) sponsored a conference that brought together scholars who work to define and develop assessments of acculturation, adn who study the impact of acculturation on families. The goals of the conference were to evaluate both status of acculturation as a scientific construct and the roles of acculturation in parenting and human development. The goal of this volume is to advance the state-of-the-art. Acculturation and Parent-Child Relationships: Measurement and Development is a must-read for researchers, students, and policymakers concerned with cultural factors that affect the lives of parents and children.
