Abstract: The significant increase in the number of Burmese migrant workers in Thailand along with their stressful working and living conditions provided the impetus for this study which explored the acculturation experiences of migrant workers. Specifically, this study examined the acculturative stressors, levels of acculturative stress and self-esteem, coping responses, and the relationship that acculturative stress may have with self-esteem and coping among Burmese female migrant workers in Thailand. Fifty-seven participants completed the Culture Shock Questionnaire (Mumford, 1998), Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale (Rosenberg, 1989), Coping Responses Inventory (Moos, 1993), and a questionnaire that inquired about demographic information and acculturative stressors. The findings showed that Burmese female migrant workers experienced job difficulties, money, language, perceived discrimination, and police as the top five highest stressors. High acculturative stress and low self esteem were likewise reported. Approach coping of positive reappraisal and seeking guidance, and avoidance coping of seeking rewards and cognitive avoidance were the most frequently used coping response to acculturative stress. Acculturative stress was found to be negatively correlated with self-esteem and with avoidant coping responses such as acceptance and emotional discharge. Suggestions for promoting positive acculturative experiences of migrant workers and future research directions are discussed.
