Abstract

Attempted to replicate an earlier study investigating cultural differences between Cuban immigrants and Anglo-Americans. Whereas the earlier study used a nonclinical adolescent population, the current study used 52 adults in outpatient treatment. Ss were given a biographical questionnaire and the Value Orientation scales. Results indicate that the groups differed in relational, temporal, and person-nature orientations, confirming previous findings and clinical observations.
