The study tested a model showing the effects of perceived parent and adolescent interaction factors such as family efficacy and parental closeness on Asian values, self-construal, and resiliency. Based on Bronfrenbrenner’s ecological system’s theory, it is hypothesized in the study that family efficacy, parental closeness, and Asian values are facilitated with group emergent properties such as family interaction factors. Different measures for each factor were administered to 1000 college students using a time lagged design. The measures for family efficacy and parental closeness were administered on the first wave and the scales for Asian values, self-construal, and resiliency in another time wave. The proposed model was tested using Structural Equations Modeling. It was found in the study that parental closeness increases with family efficacy. Parental closeness and family efficacy affects Asian values and self-construal.
