Effects of Mothers' Simulated Withdrawal and Depressed Affect on Mother-Toddler Interactions.
Seiner, Sharon H.; Gelfand, Donna M.
Child Development, v66 n5 p1519-28 Oct 1995
Effects of enacted maternal withdrawal and depression were observed in a sample of 18- to 36-month-old children during counterbalanced episodes of simulated depression and normal affect. Found that when mothers enacted withdrawal and depressed affect, toddlers physically withdrew from them, made more negative physical bids for attention, and became more unfocused and generally negative.
