Wang, Su-hsing; Luh, Wei-ming
Online Submission, US-China Education Review v6 n6 p53-63 Jun 2009
The purposes of this study were twofold: (1) to verify whether or not gender and interpersonal relationships influence the variance of psychosomatic symptoms in Taiwanese adolescents; and (2) to examine the moderating role of gender between interpersonal relationships and psychosomatic symptoms in Taiwanese adolescents. The present study adopted data from the Taiwan Education Panel Survey (TEPS) using a stratified-random methodology. Results indicated that: (1) gender accounts for a significant amount of variance of psychosomatic symptoms; (2) interpersonal relationships account for a significant amount of variance in psychosomatic symptoms over and above gender; and (3) gender moderates the associations of mother-adolescent and teacher-student relationships and psychosomatic symptoms, whereas it does not moderate the associations between father-adolescent, sibling, or peer relationships or psychosomatic symptoms.
