Participate in an Online Taiwanese Immigration Survey

Cathy Lee is a Ph.D student who is studying Taiwanese adults’ immigration experiences. If you are a Taiwanese adult who moved to the US or Canada during middle or high school WITHOUT parents, consider helping by filling out her online survey:

Title of Research Project: The Relations of Acculturation, Enculturation, and Acculturative Family Distancing to Depressive Symptoms as Mediated by Family Conflict: A Study of Taiwanese Adults

This is a study on the experiences of Taiwanese adults who came to the U.S. or Canada during middle school or high school unaccompanied by parents. The goals of the study are to (a) clarify how immigration has influenced Taiwanese adults’ experiences living in the U.S. or Canada, and (b) obtain some understanding of how Taiwanese parents and their adult children interact when they are separated by a great physical distance over a long period of time. Results of this study will hopefully inform how various resources and techniques can be used with this unique population.

This project has been approved by the University at Albany Institutional Review Board. If you have any questions concerning your rights as a research participant or if you wish to report any concerns about the study, please contact Cathy at or by phone (310-500-5905). You may also contact her faculty advisor, Dr. Myrna Friedlander at and/or the Office of Regulatory Research Compliance at the University at Albany at

You will be asked to fill out a survey online and your participation is anonymous. By participating in the study, you will have a chance to win one of the four $100.00 cash prizes. Do you know folks who fit this criteria? Please help by sharing this post.
