Interparental Discord and Adolescent Adjustment Trajectories: The Potentiating and Protective Role of Intrapersonal Attributes.
Davies, Patrick T.; Windle, Michael
Child Development, v72 n4 p1163-78 Jul-Aug 2001
Examined whether associations between marital discord and trajectories of adolescent depression and delinquency varied as a function of intrapersonal attributes. Found that difficult temperament potentiated effects of marital discord on adjustment trajectories. Heightened perceived family support protected adolescents from adverse marital discord effects. Depressive symptoms of adolescents with childhood behavior problems persisted only when exposed to elevated marital discord. (Author/KB)
