Focus Group Study on Adolescents’ Responses to Interparental Conflicts

父母間之爭執對青少年的影響──聚焦小組研究

Ka-Ching YEUNG

Abstract

As a first step for further empirical study on this area, a qualitative study was conducted by the author to explore how adolescents may be affected by the interparental conflicts of their parents. The results suggest that adolescents in Hong Kong are very sensitive to the conflicts of their parents. How adolescents assess the conflict situation may be an important factor that determines the effect of the conflict. Adolescents may feel very disturbed and stressful if the conflict of their parents might lead to divorce or separation. Some group members expressed that they would intervene to distract their parents from their own conflicts by developing problems in their lives. Most of the subjects hoped that their homes would be a place of peace and harmony.

摘要

此質量研究之設計,目的是透過小組,探討父母之間的衝突會對青少年產生甚麼影響。結果顯示香港的青少年對他們父母之間的衝突非常敏感。青少年如何衡量衝突情況,是他們受這些衝突矛盾影響的主因。倘若父母間的衝突矛盾會導致離婚,會帶給青少年很大的壓力。他們亦感到非常困擾。部分小組成員表示他們會故意在生活中製造麻煩和問題,以圖藉此來干預父母間之衝突。大部分組員都希望他們的家是一個和平協調之所。
