Abstract: In a commentary on John Berry's "Immigration, Acculturation, and Adaptation" (1997 [see abstract 9715610]), it is argued that the integration of the social skills/culture learning approach into Berry's framework for acculturation research is somewhat problematic. It is demonstrated that this approach to cross-cultural transition & adaptation has developed separately from the stress & coping elements of Berry's model. Focusing on social elements rather than psychological factors, it is suggested that the cultural learning portion of the model deserves separate attention from the psychological elements of the stress & coping processes. Recognition of this distinct & important approach is reasoned to benefit future acculturation research. S. Barrera.
