Emotion Regulation in Families of Children with Behavior Problems versus Nonclinical Comparisons

Quetsch, Lauren Borduin 21 May 2015 (has links)
<p>The following study explored the relationship between emotion regulation in children with and without externalizing behavior problems and their caregivers. The study examined emotion regulation in both clinical and comparison samples. The main research question for the study was determining if there was a link between parent and child emotion regulation in both clinical and comparison samples. Sixty families were collected from two rural populations in the United States. Families referred for parent training with children ages 2 through 8 were recruited for a clinical sample (n = 34) along with a nonclinical comparison group (n = 26). A blocking design was used. The sample was largely Caucasian (73.3%), boys (71.7%), aged 4.62 years. Parents completed measures related to child behaviors, parenting stress, and child and parent emotion regulation at a single time point. Family behaviors were also coded during structured behavioral observations. Analyses indicated higher rates of problem behaviors in the clinical group, higher rates of parenting stress, higher levels of parental emotion dysregulation, and higher levels of child emotion dysregulation. Parents of children in the clinical sample also used more negative verbalizations with their children. Parent emotion regulation was found to be correlated with child emotion regulation, parenting stress, child behavior problems, and parental use of negative speech toward their child during play situations. Findings from this research indicate a need to target and measure outcomes for emotion regulation in both parents and their children when working with families who are referred for treatment of child behavior problems.

Temporal order recall and memory awareness in Alzheimer's disease

Hendrickson, Rick, 1956- January 1991 (has links)
This study partially replicates previous findings that Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients overpredict their performance on memory tasks. Higher functioning AD patients generally overpredicted their performance as compared to their caregivers' predictions of the patients' abilities across four memory tasks. There was only one significant difference between the lower functioning AD patients' and their caregivers' predictions of the patients' performance. Higher functioning AD patients had no difficulty in providing estimations of their caregivers' abilities on the same memory tasks, while the lower functioning AD patients generally overestimated their caregivers' performance. The second part of this study evaluated AD patients' performance on two temporal order tasks. There was no significant difference between the patients' and the control subjects' temporal order judgments. Results are discussed in terms of the role of frontal cerebral systems and methodological problems inherent to research with dementia patients.

Exploration of value dimensions from client therapist compatibility research

Bergan, John Robert, 1965- January 1992 (has links)
Past research suggests that development of a compatible client therapist relationship is enhanced when the client and therapist share certain values. The purpose of this study was to explore the nature of the value dimensions that have been identified. It was hypothesized that Spiegel's value orientation profile (Spiegel, 1985) would provide a reasonable representation of the structure of these value dimensions. The World Values Scale (Ibrahim & Kahn, 1986) and the Value Orientation Profile were administered to a sample of 121 students to assess their position on the dimensions from Spiegel's model. Confirmatory factor analysis showed that Spiegel's model appeared to provide a poor fit to the data from both instruments. Two one factor models were then tested assessing value placed on achievement and philosophical concerns respectively. These models were found to provide a good fit to the data. Future research is needed to further validate these models with different populations in different settings.

Construct validation of quality of life for the severely mentally ill

Johnson, Gwendolyn Watkins, 1955- January 1992 (has links)
This study focused on the quality of life experienced by persons with severe mental illness (SMI). Previous studies indicate the need for a multi-dimensional approach to the study of quality of life and its subjective indicators. For the SMI, attention should be paid not only to the direct and intentional effects of interventions, but also to the indirect and unintentional effects, both negative and positive. Hence, an overall evaluation of individuals within this group is indicated. A multitrait-multimethod approach to construct validation using confirmatory factor analysis was employed. The hypothesized factors were modeled as multiple traits and the multiple perspectives of the respondents (i.e. patient, case manager, family member) were multiple methods. A total of 265 severely mentally ill adults served by a network of agencies in four cities were randomly sampled. The sample was approximately 50% male and 50% female, ages ranged from 19-78 years.

Psychology and Community Collaboration| Hope-Focused Marriage Enrichment Leader's Manual for Brazilian Community

Hatcher, Raquel B. O. 28 December 2013 (has links)
<p>Although Hope-Focused Couple Approach (HFCA) has been extensively researched in the United States, and demonstrated efficacy as an empirical supported couple enrichment intervention (Jakubowski, Milne, Brunner, &amp; Miller, 2004), there are not enough studies with different populations. This project attempts to implement the HFCA with Brazilian Christian couples in collaboration with local churches in Brazil. In order to accomplish this goal, the author developed a hope-focused couples workshop leader's manual that is sensitive to the Brazilian cultural and social context. </p>

THE OTHER'S PERSONALITY STYLE AS A DETERMINANT OF THE DEPRESSIVE'S INTERPERSONAL BEHAVIOR

Unknown Date (has links)
The present study was designed to examine the social responses of depressives and normals, while they were interacting with one of three personality styles. Trained confederates enacted a critical-competitive (a domineering, aggressive person), a supportive-cooperative (a warm, friendly person), or a helpless-dependent (a needy, helpless person) interpersonal style. The two groups (depressives and normals) interacted with the confederate role players over a series of face-to-face encounters, which were tape-recorded for later content analysis. Subjects also had several opportunities to exchange written communications. The subjects were led to believe that they were participating in an experiment which measured interpersonal aspects of the creative process. The results indicated that relative to normals, depressives sent more written communications of self devaluation-sadness and helplessness to confederates regardless of the type of personality style enacted. In addition, when interacting with all three roles, depressives emitted a lower percentage of neutral talk and more conversational responses which conveyed negative content. However, only when interacting with the critical-competitive personality did depressives send elevated written messages of extrapunitiveness; and these written expressions of anger were not accompanied by direct expressions of hostility when depressives conversed with the critical-competitive personality in face-to-face interactions. While conversing with the helpless-dependent personality, depressives showed a strikingly high percentage of negative self-statements which served to underscore their characteristic written messages of helplessness-sadness. Thus, the helpless-dependent personality prompted exaggerated displays of depressive symptomatology. These findings were discussed in terms of a social-interactional framework for depression. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 42-01, Section: B, page: 0363. / Thesis (Ph.D.)--The Florida State University, 1981.
