Material is presented from the treatment of five second-generation men, showing character development that the author deems to be distinctive. Under the impact of family constellations that contained a self-sacrificing but guilt-producing mother and a stern, aloof father, and an unworkable identification with a new culture, these men developed a character structure whose main elements were pseudomaturity and clowning. The older, foreign-born siblings were spared this because of stabilizing pride and identification with the old culture.
