Abstract

Qualitative studies of migration cover a wide range of concerns. The research reported here deals primarily with the mental stress of acculturation which results from the processes of migration. The authors study has focused on recent Mexican female migrants to the City of Houston and seeks to determine the strategies used by these migrants to cope with the stress of migration. As a principal cause of stress, however, the undocumented status of twenty-one out of forty six of the respondents was revealed during the course of the interviews.
