Narrative Representations of Caregivers and Emotion Dysregulation as Predictors of Maltreated Children's Rejection by Peers.
Shields, Ann; Ryan, Richard M.; Cicchetti, Dante
Developmental Psychology, v37 n3 p321-37 May 2001
Examined whether maltreated children were more likely than nonmaltreated children to develop poor-quality representations of parents and whether these representations predicted children's rejection by peers. Found that maltreated children's representations were more negative/constricted and less positive/coherent than nonmaltreated children's. Representations mediated maltreatment's effects on peer rejection by undermining emotion regulation. (Author/KB)
