Impact of Father Absence During Childhood on College Age Females' Psychological Adjustment.
Young, E. R.; Parish, T. S.
This study was carried out with a group of 98 female volunteers. The control group consisted of 27 who had not lost their fathers; the experimental group consisted of 71 who had lost their fathers due to death or divorce. All subjects were administered two checklists to measure personal adjustment and security. Results revealed that fatherless females whose mothers had not remarried demonstrated significantly greater insecurity and self-criticism than females from intact families. Neither reason for father loss nor age of daughter at time of separation were significant variables in this study. (Author/BP)
