Personality Characteristics of the Mothers of Children with Disruptive Behavior Disorder.
Lahey, Benjamin B.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v57 n4 p512-15 Aug 1989
Administered Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) to biological mothers of children aged 6-13 (N=100). Found conduct disordered (CD) children (N=13) had mothers with higher MMPI antisocial, histrionic, and disturbed adjustment scores; attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity (ADD/H) children (N=22) had no significant association with maternal MMPI elevations. Results suggest CD but not ADD/H linked to maternal personality disorder. (Author/CM)
