A Review of the Impact of Marital Conflict on Child Adjustment
Barletta, John; O'Mara, Bernie
Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, v16 n1 p91-105 Jul 2006
This article presents a review of research literature regarding the association between marital conflict and child adjustment in intact families. Factors such as the child temperament and gender, the relational dynamics between parent/s and child, the child's developmental stage and cognitive appraisal of the conflict--including aspects of the child's physiological system, as well as parenting practices--are explored to outline contributions to the understanding of issues associated with this aspect of family process. Developmental psychopathology is offered as a useful resource in terms of a process oriented theoretical framework providing a multi-dimensional approach to exploring and explaining the impact of marital conflict on children.
