Home Observations of Family Interactions of Depressed Women.
Hops, Hyman; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n3 p341-46 Jun 1987
Compared family interactions of intact families with clinically depressed mothers with those of normal families. Analyzed nonverbal affective behavior. Depressed mothers emitted significantly higher rates of dysphoric affect and lower rates of happy affect than did normal mothers. Interactions between mother's dysphoric affect and family's aggressive affect were evident. Marital discord in depressed families exacerbated problematic interaction. (Author/KS)
