[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] In this study, we aimed to explore the cross-cultural adjustment experiences of Filipina immigrants in Taiwan and their utilization of different coping strategies to intervene with challenges in cross-cultural transitions. Utilizing a feminist paradigm, twelve Filipina immigrants (age range = 29-41 years) who gained their Taiwan citizenship through marriage (duration of stay in Taiwan average = 9.4 years) were interviewed. The Consensual Qualitative Research method (Hill et al., 2005, 1997) was utilized for data analysis. Researchers identified four domains: challenges, coping, strengths, and outcomes, as well as 30 categories within the four domains. Situation-specific coping strategies and outcomes were extracted. Implications for clinical practice and research on cross-cultural coping of immigrant populations were discussed.
