Families in Trauma: Potential Problems and Determinant Factors of Parent-Child Relationship in China and Indonesia

Abstract. Family environment has a strong influence on its members, both parents and children, but especially for children, as the impact of parent-child relationships will influence their future life. Currently in China and Indonesia, many problems arise in parent-child relationships which have negative effects on children’s mental health. Crises in families due to lack of positive parent-child relationships impact children’s emotions, personality, learning, and social behavior. The aim of this study was to describe the potential problems and protective factors in parent-child relationships in families who have experienced trauma in Indonesia and China based on a culturally informed perspective.
