    Abstract PDF
    This study examined the validity and reliability of the Korean version of the coronavirus 2019(COVID-19) Stress Scale(KCSS) in mothers of children aged 0-6 years. The COVID-19 Stress Scale was translated and reverse-translated from its original English into Korean. Data were collected online from 669 participants. The Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were performed to examine the factorial structures of the KCSS. Criterion-related validity and construct validity were obtained through correlation and nomological network analyses. The results of exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses identified 16 items and three factors: infection risk, individual/ family/social interaction change, and job change. The above analyses further confirmed that the KCSS is a reliable and well-constructed measurement-valid and reliable for evaluation. The model had strong convergent and discriminant validity and suited the data well.

    Abstract PDF
    This study attended to current situations that unfairness becomes the significant social issue. In order to address the developmental process of justice sensitivity which refers to the degree of sensitive responses to unfairness, this study examined the predictors of victim justice sensitivity and perpetrator justice sensitivity of university students. Specifically, we examined whether parental acceptance predicts victim and perpetrator justice sensitivity respectively and whether the power and self-transcendence values mediate these relationships. The self-report data of 401 university students were analyzed using structural equation modeling. The results indicated that fathers’ acceptance negatively predicted power and self-transcendence values. Paternal acceptance predicted the lower level of power value, positively predicting victim justice sensitivity. The partial mediation effect of the power value was significant. Conversely, the relationship between mothers’ acceptance and perpetrator justice sensitivity was fully mediated by the value of self-transcendence. Therefore, we discussed the role of parenting and values in developing victim and perpetrator justice sensitivity and the implications for intervention. Some of the strengths of this study is that it highlighted the differential roles of paternal and maternal acceptance in the development of justice sensitivity, as well as the importance of values established through the interaction with parents.

    Children’s Adjustment in During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Focusing on Parents’ Emotional States and Parenting Practices

    Jung Yun Lee , Woo-yeol Lee , Hyun-joo Song and 1 other persons | 2022, 35(3) | pp.43~60 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study investigated the effect of parents’ emotional states and parenting practices on children’s adjustment during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Children’s negative outcomes (e.g., conduct problems) and positive outcomes (e.g., routine maintenance) and parent-related variables (e.g., perceived distress resulting from the COVID-19 crisis, anxiety, depression, parenting distress, and specific parenting practices) were measured. Participants (n=501) completed an online questionnaire between January and April 2021, during the most restrictive period of social distancing established by the Korean Government. The results indicated that perceived distress resulting from the COVID-19 crisis, anxiety, depression, parenting distress, and specific parenting practices affected children’s positive outcomes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, focused and structured parenting was specifically related to children's positive adjustment. The findings of this study may have implications for policies and programs that support children's well-being in the COVID-19 pandemic and other health-related crises. Limitations and suggestions for further studies are also discussed.

    Theoretical Review for Promoting Fathers’ Involvement in Parenting

    Yong-hun Kim , Kyung-Sook Lee | 2022, 35(3) | pp.61~81 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The objective of this study was to present baseline data and future directions for promoting fathers' parenting. This study conducted keyword network analysis using 652 and 257 papers published in Korea and overseas, respectively, and sampled using keyword combinations. The correlation between variables was confirmed by maximum connection distances between keywords and mean distances between nodes. Studies on fathers' parenting increased steadily. Fathers' role shifted from the supporter to the rearer. Early studies evaluated the effectiveness of parenting, while later studies explored ways to promote parenting. Betweenness centrality network analysis revealed that key studies were on self-efficacy, improved relationship with a wife, child's sociality, relationship, and enhanced cognitive functions. These results can be used as the baseline data for fathers' parenting, not a sufficiently studied topic, because it presents the directions for promoting fathers' involvement in parenting.

    Social Support, Basic Psychological Needs, and Life Satisfaction: Whose Support Matters?

    Chaerim Park , Huiyoung Shin | 2022, 35(3) | pp.83~106 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The present study investigated the associations between relationship-specific social support, basic psychological needs, and life satisfaction, and whether these associations differ by varying age groups. Participants of 807 adults, aged between 30 and 69 years (Mage=48.81, male=50.4%), reported their social support from spouses, friends, children, and parents, satisfaction of basic psychological needs (autonomy, competence, and relatedness), and life satisfaction in 2021 year. Structural equation modeling analyses revealed that social support from spouses and friends was positively associated with the levels of life satisfaction. While spousal support was linked to the satisfaction of all needs, friend support was positively linked to the satisfaction of competence and relatedness, and parental support was negatively linked to the satisfaction of autonomy. Moreover, the satisfaction of competence and relatedness were positively associated with life satisfaction, and they mediated the associations between spousal and friend support and life satisfaction. These associations varied by age groups, such that the magnitudes of the associations between relationship-specific social support, the satisfaction of basic psychological needs, and life satisfaction were greater for younger adults than for older adults.
