Comparing family functionality perception between non-Aymara and indigenous Aymara families in northern Chile
We compared perception of family functioning in a sample (N = 1,496) of Aymara and non-Aymara parents and children living in Arica,Chile. The children were aged from 9 to 15 years and were recruited from the 5th to 8th grades of 9 elementary schools (4 public,5 government-subsidized private schools) serving lower socioeconomic areas. Participants completed the Family Functioning Test (FF-SIL),which consists of 14 events or characteristics that may occur in a family. The results showed that parents and children from the Aymara group recorded lower scores for their perception of family functioning than did the non-Aymara group. Addressing this issue may be important in the prevention of psychological problems in these families.
