This study examined the impact of parental pressure and family conflict in Asian American undergraduate students and its effect on psychological well-being. Previous research has found that parental pressure and family conflict are associated with increased psychological distress (Greenberg & Chen, 1996). A total of 86 participants were recruited through various student organizations at several universities across the United States and assessed how parental pressure and family conflict affect psychological well-being. Results were that parental pressure from either parent does not hinder psychological well-being. Rather, the findings showed that parental pressure is associated with higher psychological well-being. Family Conflict was also found to be associated with increased psychological well-being. Implications of the results will be discussed. Keywords: Family Conflict, Parental Pressure, Psychological Well-being
