The Effect of Chinese Students’ Family Abuse Experience and Negative Emotion on their Drinking Problem - with a Focus on the Moderating Effect of Resilience


Background/Objectives: The central purpose of the present research is to investigate the effect of resilience on drinking problem, family abuse experience and negative emotion of Chinese students. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The subjects were composed of 150 Chinese students who were attending at a university located in Seoul, Kyeongsang-do and Jeolla-do Provinces. PASW 18.0 program, descriptive analysis, Pearson correlation, moderated multiple regression were conducted to explore the issues under discussion. Findings: Family abuse experience was found having a negative correlation with resilience, but a positive correlation with negative emotion and drinking problem. The Chinese students' negative experience in their childhood might later lead to a behavioral problem of drinking while studying in Korea. Depression might act as a risk factor for their drinking problem. The Chinese students' high negative emotion might lead to their maladjustment in their lives in Korea. It was also found that resilience can perform a moderating role in decreasing their drinking problem by reducing family abuse experience and negative emotion. Such a finding clearly calls for measures that may help control their negative experiences and emotion and improve their resilience. Improvements: The results of the current research are expected to provide a base data that can be used to help the Chinese students to adjust better to Korean university life and culture.
