The Influence of Fathers' Dual-Cultural Adaptation on Bicultural Competence Development Among Mexican American Youth
Biculturalism has been theorized to be an adaptive response for youth who are exposed to more than one culture (Nguyen & Benet-Martínez, 2007). Biculturalism development is influenced by the affordances and demands youth encounter in the contexts in which they are embedded (Garcia Coll et al., 1996), however little is known regarding family contextual effects on youth's bicultural competence development.We investigated how trajectories of paternal endorsement of Mexican American and mainstream values relate to U.S. Mexican-origin adolescents' bicultural competence.

Familism and Individual Adjustment Among Latinos: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Familism is a key cultural value that emphasizes support and obligation to the family, and is salient part in the lives of Latino youth and adults. Over the past three decades, a growing body of research has examined the effects of individuals' and family members' familism values on a wide range of adjustment outcomes. We know little about the magnitude of these effects or about the extent to which familism values operates as a cultural promotive or risk mechanism. Further, the potential moderators of the associations between familism values and adjustment have not been explored using a meta-analytic approach. To advance the field, we will complete a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies examining the association between familism values and Latinos' individual adjustment, considering evidence for familism values as sources of promotion and risk, and test moderators of these effects, such as developmental period, sex, and measurement.
