Examining the influence of family cohesion and adaptability on trauma symptoms and psychological well-being

Abstract

This study specifically examined the influence of family cohesion and adaptability on college students' trauma symptoms and psychological well-being in a sample of 189 undergraduate students. The participants were administered the Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scales-III (FACES-III), L.A. Symptom Checklist, and Scales of Psychological Well-Being. Two regression analyses were conducted to understand the influence of FACES on trauma symptoms and psychological well being. The results revealed that the family adaptability and cohesion has a significant unique variance in explaining both trauma symptoms and psychological well-being. Implications for counseling are also discussed. © Copyright (c) by The Haworth Press, Inc. All rights reserved.
