The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of
perceived family competence on late adolescent problem-
solving abilities, family relationships, and affective
experience. Specific areas of interest were perceived
confidence in problem-solving and approach rather than
avoidance of problems; intergenerational intimacy,
intergenerational individuation, and personal authority in
the family system as the adolescent relates to parents; and
level of depression.
Subjects were 256 late adolescents whose parents were
still married and living together. Results indicated that
perceived family competence had an effect on the dependent
variables in the expected directions. Specifically,
individuals who scored high on perceived family competence
were high on perceived problem-solving confidence,
approached problem-solving, were high on intergenerational
intimacy, intergenerational individuation, and personal
authority in relation to parents, and had less depression
than individuals low on perceived family competence.
Here’s what’s next.
