Abstract
The aim for this study was to examine how adolescents well-being influences their self-report of different family issues. The empirical material was based upon a study including 88 adolescents in a Swedish upper level lower secondary school that took part in autumn 2014. The theoretical approach was logical positivism with a hypothetic-deductive method where a survey consisting of psychometric measures was used. The measures used in this study were the Swedish version of the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) and the Swedish version of the
Family Environment Scale (FiS).
The study showed that there was a correlation between adolescents self-reported emotional problems, as well as hyperactivity, and cohesion in their family.... (More)

The measures used in this study were the Swedish version of the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) and the Swedish version of the
Family Environment Scale (FiS).
The study showed that there was a correlation between adolescents self-reported emotional problems, as well as hyperactivity, and cohesion in their family. There was also a correlation between adolescents self-reported conduct problems and conflict in their family, although this correlation was not as strong as the first one.
The results were discussed based on an individual and systemic perspective using the family life cycle model taking the individual development during adolescents into consideration. The study concluded that adolescents can not be fully understood without taking family issues into consideration although other factors are important for their well-being as well. (Less)
