Associations Between Physiological Reactivity and Children’s Behavior: Advantages of a Multisystem Approach
TLDR
It is proposed that substantial advances can be made by investigating patterns of physiological responses among multiple, concurrent systems rather than individual response systems.
Autonomic reactivity and psychopathology in middle childhood
TLDR
School-age children with mental health symptoms showed a pattern of autonomic dimorphism in their reactivity to standardised challenges, which may be of use in early identification of children with presyndromal psychopathology.
A Prospective Study of Memory for Child Sexual Abuse
TLDR
Failure to report CSA should not necessarily be interpreted as evidence that the abuse is inaccessible to memory, although inaccessibility or forgetting cannot be ruled out in a subset of cases.
Traumatic Impact Predicts Long-Term Memory for Documented Child Sexual Abuse
TLDR
Understanding an event's traumatic impact is important for predicting the accuracy of long-term memory for reported CSA, and Severity of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptomatology was positively associated with memory accuracy.
Adult attachment style and parental responsiveness during a stressful event
TLDR
Self-report adult attachment measures may be useful in the domain of parent–child relationships and the influence of adult attachment on parental behavior and children's distress was found to be independent of children's temperament and parental personality.
Do Jurors “Know” What Isn’t So About Child Witnesses?
TLDR
Jurors and jury-eligible college students’ beliefs were consistent with findings from research on some issues but diverged from the scientific consensus on other issues, and participants sometimes overestimated and sometimes underestimated the level of suggestibility observed in empirical studies.
Filial dependency and recantation of child sexual abuse allegations.
TLDR
New insight is provided into the process by which children reveal interpersonal trauma and have implications for debates concerning the credibility of child sexual abuse allegations and treatment in dependency samples.
The symphonic structure of childhood stress reactivity: Patterns of sympathetic, parasympathetic, and adrenocortical responses to psychological challenge
TLDR
Results highlight the sample-level reliability of children's neuroendocrine responses to stress and suggest important cross-system regularities that are linked to development and prior experiences and may have implications for subsequent physical and mental morbidity.
