Gender-Specific Pathways between Maternal Depressive Symptoms, Family Discord, and Adolescent Adjustment.
Davies, Patrick T.; Windle, Michael
Developmental Psychology, v33 n4 p657-68 Jul 1997
Examined relations among maternal depressive symptoms, family discord, and adolescent psychological adjustment. Found that maternal depressive symptoms were related to subsequent adolescent depressive symptoms, conduct problems, and academic difficulties for girls but not boys. Girls' greater vulnerability to family discord accounted for the impact of maternal depression on social/emotional adjustment. (Author/KB)
