Title: Behavioral problems of adolescents from returned portuguese immigrant families
Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: The aims of this study were to find out the degree of behavioral problems among adolescents from returned Portuguese immigrant families and the factors that may predict behavioral problems. The study sample consisted of 360 adolescents from returned Portuguese immigrant families with a mean age of 16.8 years (SD = 1.9). The mean duration of sojourn in Portugal for the sample was 8.2 years (SD = 4.5). They answered a self-report questionnaire. A control group involving 217 Portuguese youths was also included in the study. Adolescents from emigrant families reported fewer behavioral problems than Portuguese adolescents who had never migrated. The results showed that within the two sets of factors - socio-demographic and intercultural contact variables - were found significant predictors of behavioral problems. © NAJP.
