VALDIVIEZO VERDEZOTO, Cintya Yodeli  y  LARA-MACHADO, Juana Rosario. Influence of the family functioning and psychological well-being in Ecuadorian patresfamilias. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2021, vol.43, n.4, pp.987-1000.  Epub 31-Ago-2021. ISSN 1684-1824.

Introduction:

the current research arises motivated by the study of the variables of family functioning and psychological well-being in patresfamilias.

Objective:

to determine the influence of family functioning on the psychological well-being of patresfamilias who belong to the Ministry of International Compassion of the churches of the Nazarene in Ecuador.

Materials and method:

an observational, cross-sectional and quantitative study was carried out, in 405 patresfamilias from the cities of Riobamba, Guaranda, Puyo and Montalvo, in Ecuador, in the period August-October 2020. An inquiry was applied through Google Forms. Data on family functioning and psychological well-being were processed in Microsoft Excel, and the SPSS 25 software was used for working Spearman correlation out.

Results:

the prevalence of a moderately functional family (50.9%) and low psychological well-being (61.5%) were evidenced. The correlation between the two study variables was rho=0.215. Families were mostly nuclear and married marital status predominated.

Conclusions:

it was determined that results were not conclusive, because there was not a correlation between the study variables: family functioning and psychological well-being. The authors inferred that there were other involved variables that need to be analyzed.

Palabras clave : adult; psychological well-being; family; family functioning; patresfamilias.
