Cultural Influences on Ratings of Behavioral and Emotional Problems, and School Adjustment for Korean, Korean American, and Caucasian American Children.
Jung, Woo Sik
This study investigated the effects of child behavioral ratings on the Behavioral Assessment System for Children (BASC) assessed for elementary-age students residing in Oklahoma, Los Angeles, and Seoul, Korea. The students completed the BASC Self Report of Personality (SRP) to examine the differences in the self-report ratings of behavioral adjustment. Significant group effects on the PRS scale generally indicated that Korean and Korean American children tend to be perceived as behaving in a more controlled manner than Caucasian American children. These results are discussed in relation to the notion of the Korean family collectivism versus Western individualism and the conflicts they produce. The results also suggest that the elevated BASC SRP scores may reflect cultural factors rather than psychopathology. (Contains 13 references and 5 tables.) (JDM)
