The purpose of this study was to identify factors associated with ego-resilience among multicultural adolescents, as time passed. A longitudinal design was adopted to analyze secondary data from Multicultural Adolescents Panel Study (MAPS). The linear mixed model was utilized for the change analysis of ego-resilience. As time elapsed, the ego-resilience of female students decreased by 0.027 significantly different from that of male. While the age, cultural adaptation stress and national identity of subjects increased by 1.0, their ego-resilience decreased significantly by 0.012, 0.066 and 0.073 respectively. As the relationship among peer group and with teachers increased by 1.0, their ego-resilience also increased by 0.046 and 0.031 respectively in accordance. Consequently, we may conclude that the active participation of their peer group and teachers should be essentially performed to constitute the development of an ego-resilience promoting program for multi-cultural adolescents.
