Parenting Behaviors and Posttraumatic Symptoms in Relation to Children's Symptomatology Following a Traumatic Event
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
Child- and caregiver-report about parenting behaviors, and caregiver-report of their own symptoms were examined in relation to children’s symptomatology following a potentially traumatic event (PTE) among 91 youth. Child- report of hostile/coercive parenting was a salient predictor of child PTSD, internalizing symptoms and personal adjustment. Caregivers’ own trauma symptoms predicted caregiver-report of child PTSD, internalizing and externalizing symptoms, but not child-reported child symptoms. Implications for assessment and intervention following exposure to a PTE are emphasized.
