본 연구의 목적은 다문화청소년의 스트레스와 우울 및 가족탄력성과 인터넷게임중독과의 관계를 파악해 보고 스트레스와 우울과 인터넷게임중독에 대한 가족탄력성의 매개효과를 분석해보고자 한다. 연구대상은 다문화청소년 204명이며, 자료분석은 SPSS와 AMOS를 통해 기술통계, 상관관계와 구조모형방정식을 이용하였다. 본 연구 결과는 다음과 같다. 첫째, 스트레스와 우울은 인터넷게임중독과 유의한 정적 관계를, 가족탄력성은 인터넷게임중독과 유의한 부적 관계를 나타내었다. 둘째, 스트레스와 우울은 가족탄력성에 유의한 부적 영향을, 인터넷게임중독에 유의한 정적 영향을 주었다. 셋째, 가족탄력성은 스트레스와 우울과 인터넷게임중독간의 관계를 매개하는 효과가 나타났다. 스트레스와 우울은 가족탄력성을 통해 인터넷게임중독에 간접적으로 영향을 미치는 것으로 나타났다. 따라서 다문화청소년의 가족탄력성 향상을 위해서는 청소년개인의 스트레스와 우울이 개입되어야 하며 인터넷게임중독예방을 위한 가족탄력성증진 프로그램 개발 및 시행이 요구된다.
