When the dominant group enforces certain forms of acculturation, or constrains the choices of nondominant groups or individuals, then other terms need to be used. In particular, integration can only be “freely” chosen and successfully pursued by nondominant groups when the dominant society is open and inclusive in its orientation toward cultural diversity. Thus a mutual accommodation is required to attain integration, involving the acceptance by both groups of the right of all groups to live as culturally different peoples.

At the individual level (psychological acculturation), both behavior changes and acculturative stress phenomena are now known to be a function, at least to some extent, of what people try to do during their acculturation, and the longer term outcomes (both psychological and sociocultural adaptations) often correspond to the strategic goals set by the groups of which they are members (Berry, 1997).
