Abstract

Many studies have examined the reentry process of Japanese children raised abroad. Results suggest that "feeling different" is a key factor in describing their experiences. These studies, however, were based only on self-reports of returnees. The current study examined returnees' peers' perceptions and the factors that affected them. Results indicated that the returnees' peers' perceptions could be summarized by two factors: "advantage" and "difference/disadvantage." Those who had studied abroad and who had known many returnees had a balanced perspective of the returnee experience. Women were more likely to perceive advantages while those who were older were more likely to perceive differences/disadvantages.
