The prevalence of asthma among children and adolescents in Bangkok, Thailand has increased substantially from 4.2% in 1986 to 13% in 1996. This correlational, model-testing study examined the relationships among family functioning, self-esteem, and resourceful coping in Thai asthmatic adolescents. Within the context of Rosenbaum’s theory of learned resourcefulness, a convenience sample of 132 Thai adolescents (aged 12-17 years) who have asthma was recruited from outpatient asthma clinics of four hospitals in Bangkok. Of these participants, 62.1% were males (n=82), and 37.9% were females (n=50). The average age of the participants was 13.5 years (SD=1.5). Data were collected using self-administered questionnaires, including an assessment of demographic information and asthma status, the revised Family APGAR, the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, and the Children Self-control Scale. Hierarchical multiple regression analysis was employed to explain the relationships among variables. Results showed that family functioning had a significant positive effect on self-esteem (=.27, p < .01) and resourceful coping (=.30, p < .01), after controlling for setting, gender, and age. Self-esteem was positively related to resourceful coping; however, this relationship only approached significance (=.15, p=.08). About 10% of the variance in resourceful coping was explained by setting, gender, age, family functioning, and self-esteem. The findings suggest that pediatric nursing interventions should focus on the importance of family functioning in promoting self-esteem and resourceful coping of Thai adolescents with asthma. The findings also provide tentative support for the usefulness of Rosenbaum’ s conceptual model of learned resourcefulness. Recommendations for future research include replication of this study with a larger sample of adolescents with asthma as well as with adolescents with other chronic illness.
