Exploring the Effects of Low Power Schemas in Mothers.
Mills, Rosemary S. L.
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n86 p61-77 Win 1999
Assessed whether low perceived maternal power and temperamentally fearful preschool-aged daughters predicted subsequent maternal overcontrol and internalizing symptoms in daughters 2 years later. Found that low perceived maternal power predicted subsequent maternal overcontrol with initially fearful daughters but did not predict subsequent internalizing symptoms. Low-power mothers were especially likely to use love withdrawal and guilt induction 2 years later. (KB)
