The psychological profile of Jewish late adolescents in the USSR Academic Article uri icon


  • Psychological well-being and the level of psychological autonomy were studied in a group of 109 Jewish late adolescents in the USSR. The subjects were not found to be more distressed than their American peers, but their dependency on their parents was significantly higher. The findings are discussed in the light of Soviet social values and child rearing attitudes and their impact on the adjustment of Soviet immigrant adolescents in Israel.
