ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine the moderating effects of life-goals between mobile phone dependency and social emotional problems of youth in crisis situation. The data for the 9th grade students (N=2,259) from the nationally representative Korea Child and Youth Panel Study were analyzed using hierarchical regression models. The results of this study are as follows. First, mobile phone dependency had a significant effect on social emotional problems (Attention, aggression, depression) in youth. Second, the moderating effect of life-goals on the relationship between mobile phone dependency and social emotional problems was significant. Furthermore, the simple main effect analysis shows that the group of high life-goals are less influenced than that of low life-goals in terms of an effect of mobile phone dependency on socio-emotional problems, which indicates that life-goals could minimize negative effects of mobile phone dependency on social emotional problems in youth. Therefore, this study implies that the establishment of life-goals could be essential in intervention and prevention for mobile phone dependency affecting socio-emotional problems of youth.
