This study examined the hypothesis that acculturation gaps between immigrant parents and adolescents are associated with youth internalizing/externalizing symptoms and family conflict. We tested this hypothesis in a sample of Korean American families, and preliminary results show that acculturation gaps are not associated with internalizing/externalizing behaviors and family conflict.
