Abstract:

Immigration and its impact on rates of delinquency and crime remains a source of concern not only in the United States, but also in Western Europe. However, despite this, the dynamics of how immigration impacts personality and delinquency among youth remains a neglected area of scholarship, largely because most studies have focused on immigrants as an isolated group (Grove & Zwi, 2006; Virraruel-Fuentes, 2007). Previous work has provided inconclusive findings on potential immigration effects on adolescentÂ’s personality and their adjustment (e.g., Fuligni, 1998; Walsh et al., 2007). The current study examines the unique contributions of individual differences or personality traits (self-esteem, depression, anxiety, well-being, aggressiveness, impulsivity, consideration, and responsibility) and parenting processes (closeness, communication, monitoring, support) on rates of alcohol use, drug use, and delinquency in samples of immigrant and non-immigrant Dutch (n=1,311) and Swiss (n=3,540) youth. Results lend preliminary evidence of unique variance in problem behaviors explained by parenting processes and personality traits. Significant interaction effects by immigration status found between personality traits, parenting processes and problem behaviors will be further examined in follow-up analyses across groups of youth. Findings will be discussed in terms of theoretical and practical implications for scholars and professionals working with immigrant youth.
