Social Cognition and Adjustment in Children at Risk for Psychopathology.
Downey, Geraldine; Walker, Elaine
Developmental Psychology, v25 n5 p835-45 Sep 1989
Tested 2 models of the effect of social cognition on the link between child adjustment and the 2 family risk factors of maltreatment and parental psychopathology. In 83 subjects of 7-14 years, maltreatment predicted aggression and peer rejection, but parental psychopathology did not. Adjustment of subjects with a disturbed parent depended on maltreatment status. (RJC)
