ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||The research investigated affective, behavioral and cognitive dimensions of home and host culture influences on sojourner adjustment. A multi-national sample of 104 foreigners resident in Nepal completed questionnaires which examined locus of control, loneliness, host and co-national identification, frequency of contact with host and co-nationals, discrepancy between actual and desired contact with host and co-nationals, and satisfaction with host and co-national relations as predictors of psychological adjustment. Regression analysis revealed that these variables combined to account for 38% of the variance in the outcome measure with an external locus of control, a high level of loneliness, a weak co-national identification and overall dissatisfaction with the quality of both host and co-national relations emerging as significant predictors of global mood disturbance. © 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
