Feeling Trauma and Its Relationship to Alienation, Personality Values and Psychological Disorders Among Kuwaiti Youth

Auther : Rashed Al-Sahel/ Masri Hanora

The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of trauma on youth’s personality values and alienation. The sample consists of 1337 Kuwaiti youth: males and females, their ages ranged between 15 and 40 years. A battery of different psychological subscales was administered to them. The battery contained the following subscales. Multidimension Alienation Inventory (MDAI), Personal Values Check List (PVCL), Critical Items of Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI), and Trauma Feeling Scale (TFS). The TFS constructed by the researchers, to assess a number of psychological variables that people experience during or after trauma.

 The sample was divided into three groups according to the scores they earned on TFS: a group with low scores, a group with mediate scores and a group with high scores. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) and (t) after ANOVA were carried out to determine the differences between groups.

 The results show significant differences between groups. The youth who earned the highest scores on TFS earned also the highest scores on alienation scales, and psychological disorders and the lowest scores on personal positive values, which means that the youth with high score on TFS have a high opportunity to have psychological disorders.

 Keywords: Trauma, Alienation, Personality, Values.
