Because of the stress of migration, one might expect the health and behavior of foreign-born youth to be worse than that of native-born youth. However, Hamilton's examination of the mental health, physical health, and deviant behavior of first-, second-, and third- and later-generation immigrant youth indicates that this is often not the case. Hamilton also explores disparities in family process and the impact of such processes on the health and behavior of immigrant youth. Results indicate that although aspects of family process vary across generations, they do not fully explain findings of better physical health and behavior among foreign-born than native-born youth
