  • This study analyzes the impact of the experiences of elderly using social welfare organizations in socio-economic deprivation on their relational aggression damage experiences, and verifies the mediating effects of rejection sensitivity. For data collection, 275 of 290 questionnaires, excluding 15 questionnaires with inadequate responses, were used for the final analysis. The SPSS and AMOS programs were used for data analysis through the following procedures. The analysis showed that socio-economic deprivation experiences, relational aggression damage experiences, and rejection sensitivity were higher for the groups of male elderly, higher age, education above college, absence of spouse, and longer institutionalization. The size of indirect effect (${\beta}=.32$) was larger than that of direct effect (${\beta}=.14$), signifying that the indirect impact through rejection sensitivity was larger than the impact of socio-economic deprivation on the experiences of damage by relational aggression. With the above findings, this study makes practical suggestions for institutional measures to reduce the elderly's relational aggression damage experiences and rejection sensitivity and programs on socio-economic deprivation, etc.
