Comparing Family Functionality Perception Between Non- Aymara And Indigenous Aymara Families In Northern Chile
MetadataShow full item record
We compared perception of family functioning in a sample (N = 1,496) of Aymara and non- Aymara parents and children living in Arica, Chile. The children were aged from 9 to 15 years and were recruited from the 5th to 8th grades of 9 elementary schools (4 public, 5 governmentsubsidized private schools) serving lower socioeconomic areas. Participants completed the Family Functioning Test (FF-SIL), which consists of 14 events or characteristics that may occur in a family. The results showed that parents and children from the Aymara group recorded lower scores for their perception of family functioning than did the non-Aymara group. Addressing this issue may be important in the prevention of psychological problems in these families.
