Children’S Emotion Regulation And Attachment To Parents: Parental Emotion Socialization As Moderator, Emine Ahmetoglu, Gökçen Ilhan Ildiz, Ibrahim H. Acar, Amy J. Encinger

Faculty Publications, Department of Child, Youth, and Family Studies

We examined the associations among parental emotion socialization, and children’s emotion regulation and attachment to parents. In particular, we examined the moderating role of parental emotion socialization in the relationship between children’s emotion regulation and attachment to parents. Participants were 78 Turkish children (49 boys) aged from 60 to 77 months and their parents. Parents reported on the socialization strategies they used for their children’s emotions and on their children’s emotion regulation, and we assessed children’s attachment to parents via the Doll Story Completion Task. Results revealed that parents’ minimization reaction to children’s emotions ...

Parent-Child Relationships, Melinda S. Leidy, Thomas J. Schofield, Ross D. Parke 2017 Iowa State University

Parent-Child Relationships, Melinda S. Leidy, Thomas J. Schofield, Ross D. Parke

Thomas Schofield

One of the most important and earliest relationships is the parent-child relationship. During infancy, this relationship focuses on the parent responding to the infant's basic needs. Over time, an attachment forms between the parent and child in response to the these day-to-day interactions. During toddlerhood, parents attempt to shape their children's social behaviors. Parents play various roles for their toddlers, including acting as teacher, nurturers, and providers of guidance and affection. Throughout childhood, children become more interested in peers. However, parents continue to influence their children through their parenting styles. In addition, parents serve as providers of social ...


Consistency And Timing Of Marital Transitions And Survival During Midlife: The Role Of Personality And Health Risk Behaviors, Ilene C. Siegler, Beverly H. Brummett, Peter Martin, Michael J. Helms 2017 Duke University

Consistency And Timing Of Marital Transitions And Survival During Midlife: The Role Of Personality And Health Risk Behaviors, Ilene C. Siegler, Beverly H. Brummett, Peter Martin, Michael J. Helms

Peter Martin

Background Marital status is associated with survival. Purpose The aims of this study are to evaluate marital history and timing on mortality during midlife, test the role of pre-marital personality, and quantify the role of health risk behaviors. Methods Cox proportional hazard models were run with varying classifications of marital history and sets of covariates. Results In fully adjusted models compared to the currently married, lifetime marital history predicts premature mortality with never married at 2.33 times risk of death and ever married at 1.64 risk of death. Midlife marital history shows that not having a partner during ...


Comparing The Support-Efficacy Model Among Centenarians Living In Private Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, And Nursing Homes, G. Kevin Randall, Peter Martin, Maurice MacDonald, Jennifer A. Margrett, Alex J. Bishop, Leonard W. Poon 2017 Bradley University

Comparing The Support-Efficacy Model Among Centenarians Living In Private Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, And Nursing Homes, G. Kevin Randall, Peter Martin, Maurice Macdonald, Jennifer A. Margrett, Alex J. Bishop, Leonard W. Poon

Peter Martin

We investigated the influence of social relations on health outcomes in very late life by examining the support-efficacy convoy model among older adults who resided in three different residential environments (centenarians in private homes, n = 126; centenarians in assisted living facilities, n = 55 ; centenarians in nursing homes, n = 105). For each group, path analytic models were employed to test our hypotheses; analyses controlled for sex, mental status, education, perceived economic sufficiency, and activities of daily living. The hypothesized relationships among the models’ variables were unique to each of the three groups; three different models fit the data depending upon residential ...


The Relationship Between Physical Health And Psychological Well-Being Among Oldest-Old Adults, Jinmyoung Cho, Peter Martin, Jennifer A. Margrett, Maurice MacDonald, Leonard W. Poon 2017 Iowa State University

The Relationship Between Physical Health And Psychological Well-Being Among Oldest-Old Adults, Jinmyoung Cho, Peter Martin, Jennifer A. Margrett, Maurice Macdonald, Leonard W. Poon

Peter Martin

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between physical health and psychological well-being among oldest-old adults. Structural equation modeling was performed to examine health influences on psychological well-being among 306 octogenarians and centenarians from the Georgia Centenarian Study. Latent variables were created to reflect subjective health, as measured by self-ratings of health and objective health, as measured by physical health impairment (i.e., health problems, past and present diseases, hospitalization) and biomarkers (i.e., hemoglobin and albumin). Psychological well-being was measured by positive and negative affect. There were significant direct effects of subjective health on affect and ...


Comparison Of Two Informant Questionnaire Screening Tools For Dementia And Mild Cognitive Impairment: Ad8 And Iqcode, Mehrdad Razavi, Magdalena I. Tolea, Jennifer Margrett, Peter Martin, Andrew Oakland, David W. Tscholl, Sarah Ghods, Mazdak Mina, James E. Galvin 2017 McFarland Clinic Ames, IA

Peter Martin

Background—Dementia and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) are under-recognized in community settings. This may be due in part to the lack of brief dementia screening tools available to clinicians. We compared two brief, informant-based screening tests: the AD8 and the Informant Questionnaire on Cognitive Decline in the Elderly (IQCODE) in a community-based neurology practice in the Midwestern United States Methods—We examined 186 consecutive patients (44 controls, 13 with MCI, and 129 with dementia). Receiver operator characteristic curves were used to examine the ability of AD8 and IQCODE to discriminate between controls and MCI or dementia. Sensitivity, specificity, predictive values ...

Peter Martin

While it is understood that longevity and health are influenced by complex interactions among biological, psychological, and sociological factors, there is a general lack of understanding on how psychosocial factors impact longevity, health, and quality of life among the oldest old. One of the reasons for this paradox is that the amount of funded research on aging in the US is significantly larger in the biomedical compared to psychosocial domains. The goals of this paper are to highlight recent data to demonstrate the impact of four pertinent psychosocial domains on health and quality of life of the oldest old and ...

A-1 Children's Participation Rights, Michelet William 2017 Andrews University

A-1 Children's Participation Rights, Michelet William

Celebration of Research and Creative Scholarship

This paper presents an overview of the concept of children’s participation from a human rights perspective, using the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child as framework. It emphasizes the importance of children’s active participation in decisions and actions that relate to their advancement and that of their community. Drawing on examples primarily from Haiti, the paper proposes three basic rationales for children’s participation: 1) historically, they are key actors of social and political changes; 2) their participation enhances order and stability; and 3) their participation enhances provision and protection rights. As right-holders, children should ...


Rancher Perceptions Of Ecosystem Services From Rangelands Of The Intermountain West, Elisabeth C. York 2017 Utah State University

Rancher Perceptions Of Ecosystem Services From Rangelands Of The Intermountain West, Elisabeth C. York

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Rangelands within the Great Basin are responsible for the provision of multiple resources that humans depend on for a variety of reasons. Ranchers in this region are dependent on public lands to remain economically viable in their cattle operations. As a majority of land in this region is publically owned, there are varying interests at play in what should and could be the focus of management. Ranchers are charged with implementing strategies aimed at conserving these landscapes and their motivations for what to manage may significantly influence resource provision from Intermountain West ecosystem.

In this study, I sought to understand ...
