Adolescents' Cognitive and Emotional Responses to Marital Hostility

Adolescents' Cognitive and Emotional Responses to Marital Hostility Early adolescents' (11–14 years) responses to marital hostility were examined in a sample of 416 families. The cognitive‐contextual perspective and emotional security hypothesis guided the study and 9 adolescent responses were identified. Prospective associations were examined in several structural equation models that included adolescent problems as outcomes. Self‐blame and perceived threat uniquely mediated the association between Year 1 marital hostility and Year 3 adolescent externalizing problems (p<.05). Self‐blame, lower constructive representations, internalization of feelings, avoidance, and emotional dysregulation uniquely mediated the association between Year 1 marital hostility and Year 3 internalizing problems. Specific cognitive and emotionally based responses are important to understanding how martial hostility affects youth and need to be considered within an integrated model. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Child Development Wiley

Abstract

Early adolescents' (11–14 years) responses to marital hostility were examined in a sample of 416 families. The cognitive‐contextual perspective and emotional security hypothesis guided the study and 9 adolescent responses were identified. Prospective associations were examined in several structural equation models that included adolescent problems as outcomes. Self‐blame and perceived threat uniquely mediated the association between Year 1 marital hostility and Year 3 adolescent externalizing problems (p<.05). Self‐blame, lower constructive representations, internalization of feelings, avoidance, and emotional dysregulation uniquely mediated the association between Year 1 marital hostility and Year 3 internalizing problems. Specific cognitive and emotionally based responses are important to understanding how martial hostility affects youth and need to be considered within an integrated model.
