Over- and Undercontrolled Referral Problems among Children and Adolescents from Thailand and the United States: The "Wat" and "Wai" of Cultural Differences.
Weisz, John R.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n5 p719-26 Oct 1987
Compared Thailand to United States in regard to children's psychological problems and corresponding clinic referral patterns. Overcontrolled problems (somaticizing, fearfulness, nervous movements, worrying) were reported more often for Thai than for American youth. Undercontrolled problems (disobedience, fighting, lying, arguing) were reported more often for American than for Thai youth. Culture and developmental level appeared to influence adjustment.
