Psychological Distress and the Recall of Childhood Family Characteristics.
Amato, Paul R.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n4 p1011-19 Nov 1991
Investigated how psychological state influences reporting of early family experiences. University students (n=176) completed measures of psychological distress and childhood family experiences at beginning and end of semester. Found increases in psychological distress associated with recalling parental marital relationship more negatively, more incidents of violence between parents and between parents and children, and more economic hardship.
