MAPPING THE PROJECTIONS OF CHILD VARIABLES UPON A SPECIAL PARENT BEHAVIOR MODEL AND VICE VERSA.
LAUTERBACH, CARL G.; SCHAEFER, EARL S.
SPHERICAL MODELS OF PARENT BEHAVIOR AND OF SELF-REPORTED PERSONALITY ADJUSTMENT WERE CONSTRUCTED IN AN ATTEMPT TO EXAMINE INTERRELATIONSHIPS OF THE VARIABLES OF THOSE DOMAINS. THE THREE MAJOR DIMENSIONS OF PARENT BEHAVIOR ARE DESCRIBED AND EMPLOYED--(1) ACCEPTANCE VS. REJECTION, (2) PSYCHOLOGICAL CONTROL, AND (3) LAX VS. FIRM CONTROL. THE THREE DIMENSIONS OF PERSONALITY ADJUSTMENT EMPLOYED WERE SEVERE MALADJUSTMENT AND NEUROTIC REPRESSION (REPLICATING WELSH'S TWO MMPI FACTORS OF A AND R), PLUS A THIRD FACTOR OF INTROVERSION VS. EXTROVERSION. COMPARISON OF PERSONALITY AND BEHAVIOR SCALES WITH THE MODEL SPHERES SHOWED THAT SELF-REPORTS OF MALADJUSTMENT TEND TO BE MOST HIGHLY RELATED TO A SECTOR OF PARENT BEHAVIOR THAT FALLS BETWEEN PSYCHOLOGICAL CONTROL AND REJECTION. REPORTS OF DEVIANT PARENTAL BEHAVIOR ARE MOST HIGHLY RELATED TO SELF-REPORT OF SEVERE MALADJUSTMENT AND INTROVERSION. LIMITATIONS NOTED WERE THE NEED TO DEVELOP CONCEPTS FOR THE MANY EMPTY SECTORS OF THE CONCEPTUAL SPACES AND THE NEED FOR MORE ADEQUATE SAMPLES, METHODS, AND MEASURES. HOWEVER, THESE PRELIMINARY MAPPINGS OF CHILD VARIABLES UPON A PARENT BEHAVIOR SPHERE SUGGEST THAT THIS MAY BE A PROMISING APPROACH TO INTEGRATION OF MULTIVARIATE STUDIES OF PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIPS. THIS PAPER WAS DELIVERED AT THE AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (CHICAGO, SEPTEMBER 4, 1965). (BB)
