Abstract

AbstractINTRODUCTION: Parenting is a complex process and it is considering as the main element that forms the attitude and behaviour of a child as well as the parents-children emotional relationship.ONJECTIVES: The main objective of this study is to investigate the moderation role of resilience on the causal relationship between perceived authoritarian father (PAF) and obsessive-compulsive personality disorders (OCPD).METHODS: by use Methods to achieve the main objective. 180 undergraduate students from a public university in Penang, Malaysia were recruited to respond to three sets of questionnaires namely CD-RISC-25 instrument by Connor and Davidson (2003), Parent Authority Questionnaire (PAQ) by Buri (1991). As well as Five Factor Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory (FFOCI) by Samuel (2012). Consequently, multiple regression analyses yielded the results that PAF significantly predicts the OCPD.RESULTS: It was discovered that resilience significantly moderates the effect of PAF on OCPD. CONCLUSIONS: the danger of the OCPD should be introduced as early as possible before young couples started to become parents and get into the APS-encouraging society. Implications and limitations of the study are discussed, and suggestions for future research are offered.
