Dimensions of Familism among Hispanic and Mainstream Navy Recruits
ILLINOIS UNIV AT URBANA DEPT OF PSYCHOLOGY
Pagination or Media Count:
The dimensions of Hispanic and Mainstream familism, that is emphasis on family relationships and family interdependence, were explored with a sample of Hispanic and Mainstream Navy recruits. Hispanic and Mainstream recruits were equally willing to sacrifice take a loan, sell own TV, borrow to be present at a family crisis e.g. brother died but the Hispanics were more willing than the Mainstream to sacrifice to be present in family celebrations e.g. nephew is being baptized. The sharpest differences indicated that Hispanics were more willing than Mainstream recruits to sacrifice to attend celebrations involving second and third degree relatives.
