Mexican immigrant mothers express a range of concerns related to acculturation stress that limits family functioning and ultimately impedes their adaptation to life in the United States. To clarify the relationship, researchers must assess acculturation and family functioning with culturally sensitive measures. We hypothesize that families with higher acculturation stress demonstrate decreased family functioning. The purpose of this paper is to present a cross-sectional description of the Mexican immigrant mothers' acculturation stress and family functioning. The study is guided by the MAPS model, an adaptation of the Interaction Model of Client Health Behavior. The sample for the report is from the first wave of 50 Mexican immigrant mothers participating in the Rush Mexican American Problem Solving Program. The instruments for the study include the Acculturation and Structural Assimilation Index and the Feetham Family Functioning Survey. Data were collected on home visits. Data analysis includes descriptive and correlational statistics. Instrument reliability and validity will also be reported for the immigrant population. In addition to the summary statistics, we will present the picture of acculturation stress that is illustrated by the specific problems identified in home visits. These findings provide a basis for tailoring nursing interventions that address the needs of Mexican immigrant families.
