The potential impact of victimization on somatic symptoms among Asian American adolescents: A national longitudinal studyAsian American Journal of Psychology (2011)
AbstractThis study explored the mental health repercussions among Asian American adolescents following experiences of violent victimization. Utilizing a subsample of Asian American adolescents from Waves I and II of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health), this study examined the relationship between violent victimization and somatic symptoms one year later, as well as moderators of this relationship. Results from a hierarchical multiple regression analysis showed that emotional bonds with fathers were negatively related to somatic symptoms. In addition, instrumental bonds with mothers weakened the link between violent victimization and somatic symptoms. The practical implications of these results for addressing the psychosocial needs of Asian American adolescents were discussed.
