Adolescents' Stress Levels, Coping Activities and Father's Drinking Behavior.
Rouse, Beatrice A.; And Others
The relationship between stress and adjustment and the perceived severity of father's drinking was studied in a random sample of adolescents in a southeastern general population. Significant differences were found on measures of psychophysiological stress, degree of anger usually expressed and activities used to relieve depression. Children of heavy drinkers indicated more stress and depression but utilized fewer effective adaptive methods of dealing with their anxiety and depression. These findings suggest the importance of the perceived father's drinking behavior for their children's physical and psychological health and the need for counseling and school programs in this area.
