Abstract

This article discusses two dimensions of bicultural involvement and reports on the development and validation of a biculturalism and a cultural involvement scale for operationalizing both of these dimensions. Subjects for this study consisted of Hispanic-American junior high school students living in the Greater Miami area. Both scales proved to be reliable and valid for Cuban-Americans. Theoretical and clinical implications of biculturalism to adjustment are discussed, and data to substantiate this relationship are presented; bicultural youngsters were better adjusted than monocultural youngsters.
