Abstract Psychological acculturation refers to the changes and stabilities in psychological functioning after migration. An overview is presented of models that have been proposed in the literature about the structure of acculturation. Historically, the shift has been from one- to two- to multidimensional models. The models are described and their strengths and weaknesses are discussed. It is argued that the shift to two- and more recently multidimensional models is partly based on scientific data suggesting that simpler models do not reflect the complex reality of psychological acculturation and partly based on the changing nature of migration in the last 100 years. The old idea of migration where migrants settle in a new part of the world and never return to where they came from is now complemented by new types of often temporary migration such as found among expatriates, international seasonal laborers, and exchange students. The most recent models accommodate this changed reality.
