Pearson correlation coefficient was used in the matrix of Table 1 for each of the data among family functioning, resilience and peer support seeking. The table showed that it was tested significant positive correlation among resilience, peer support seeking and the five items of family functioning. The hypothesis had been proven. Moreover, only two items of family functioning, resolve and growth, were significant positive correlated to peer support seeking which suggested that resilience may play a mediator role between the independent variable (growth and resolve) of family functioning and the dependent variable (peer support seeking). Therefore, a hierarchical linear regression analyses was processed to explore the mediating effect of resilience of TTFS.

With peer support seeking as the dependent variable, gender, age, resilience, resolve, growth, as independent variables, hierarchical linear regression analysis was used in following procedure. Step one: sex, age, entered…
