    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;The authors investigated how work-family balance mediated the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;relationship between personality traits, gender roles, social support, and&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;psychosocial adjustment. Data were collected from 243 married&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;international graduate students (MIGSs) studying in the United States.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Results of structural equation modeling indicated that personality traits&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;influence the psychosocial adjustment process. In addition, being&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;extraverted, agreeable, and conscientious contributed to balancing&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;academic and family life, whereas having neurotic tendencies such as&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;experiencing depression and anxiety diminished work-family balance.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Work-family balance did not mediate the relationship between personality&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;traits, gender roles, social support, and psychosocial adjustment. The&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;authors discussed the findings by considering clinical implications and&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;making suggestions for future research.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
