Abstract (Summary)

Individuals who have experienced culturally diverse settings are known to be psychologically more resilient, and interpersonally and academically more proficient. Despite being multiculturally exposed as a result of their families’ geographical mobility, Third Culture Kids (TCKs) experience psychological and sociocultural adaption difficulties when they return to their passport countries (Pollock, Van Reken & Pollock, 2017). In the context of Singaporean TCKs, this study investigated the effect of family relocation on their adaptive functioning, using the Differentiation of Self Inventory-Revised (DSI-R; Skowron & Schmit, 2003) and the Multicultural Personality Questionnaire-Short Form (MPQ-SF; Van der Zee, van Oudenhoven, Ponterotto, & Fietzer, 2013). Logistic regression analyses shed light on age at repatriation as a significant predictor of their adaptive functioning.
