Impact of Parental Substance Use Disorder and Child Neglect Severity on Substance Use Involvement in Male Offspring

Impact of Parental Substance Use Disorder and Child Neglect Severity on Substance Use Involvement... Two child self-report scales were developed to measure parental neglect (emotional distance and parental involvement) in a sample of 344 boys between 10 and 12 years of age. Psychometric analyses of the parental emotional distance and involvement scales demonstrated their unidimensionality; construct, concurrent, and predictive validity; and reliability. Cross-sectional analyses indicated that neglect was more severe among boys who had a parent with a DSM-III-R lifetime substance use disorder (SUD) compared to youth whose parents had no Axis I psychiatric disorder. In addition, children reported more severe neglect by the mother than the father. Longitudinal analyses of a subsample (n = 99) revealed that child neglect at ages 10–12 predicted significant variance on a composite measure of substance use involvement and severity of substance use as well as increased the risk for SUD at age 19. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Prevention Science Springer Journals

Abstract

Two child self-report scales were developed to measure parental neglect (emotional distance and parental involvement) in a sample of 344 boys between 10 and 12 years of age. Psychometric analyses of the parental emotional distance and involvement scales demonstrated their unidimensionality; construct, concurrent, and predictive validity; and reliability. Cross-sectional analyses indicated that neglect was more severe among boys who had a parent with a DSM-III-R lifetime substance use disorder (SUD) compared to youth whose parents had no Axis I psychiatric disorder. In addition, children reported more severe neglect by the mother than the father. Longitudinal analyses of a subsample (n = 99) revealed that child neglect at ages 10–12 predicted significant variance on a composite measure of substance use involvement and severity of substance use as well as increased the risk for SUD at age 19.
