Despite increasing knowledge of social and biological risk factors for callous-unemotional (CU) traits, relatively less is known about how these two sets of risk factors combine to affect these traits. The current longitudinal study investigated pathways from parenting style to CU traits via resting heart rate in a three-year project. Parents of 382 children completed the Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire at Time 1 (children Mean age = 9.06, SD = 0.94, range = 7-11 years), with the… 

Parental care and depressive symptoms among Chinese medical students: roles of empathy and gender

The results of this study provide a reference and basis for the adjustment of medical education and help in the design of effective psychological intervention measures to reduce the degree of depressive symptoms and enhance personal empathy.

Findings partially replicate previous findings regarding the association between quality of parenting and prospective change in CU traits, and provide initial evidence that CU traits disrupt parenting practices over time.

The Inventory of Callous-Unemotional Traits (ICU) in Children: Reliability and Heritability

This is the first study to account for measurement error while examining the heritability of CU traits, furthering the understanding of psychopathy in children.

Predictors and outcomes of joint trajectories of callous-unemotional traits and conduct problems in childhood.

Children with high or increasing levels of CU traits and concomitant high levels of CP presented the most negative outcomes at 12 years (including hyperactivity, peer problems, emotional problems, and negative parental feelings).

Do callous-unemotional traits moderate the relative importance of parental coercion versus warmth in child conduct problems? An observational study.

These findings suggest that different dimensions of parenting may need to be targeted in the treatment of early onset conduct problems in children high and low on callous-unemotional traits.

Low resting heart rate, sensation seeking and the course of antisocial behaviour across adolescence and young adulthood

Lower RHR in childhood was associated with higher ASB levels in mid-adolescence, indirectly via sensation seeking, and this association was explained, in part, by sensation seeking and callous-unemotional traits.

The relationship between resting heart rate and aggression in males is racially variant.

The relationship between heart rate and aggression is racially variant, suggesting that resting heart rate may not be a generalizable biomarker for conduct problems, and could contribute to the development of more accurate risk assessment tools that take into account racial variance in risk factors.

Children exposed to lower levels of physical punishment showed decreases in CU traits over time, whereas higher levels of child-reported parental warmth and involvement predicted decreases in both CU traits and antisocial behavior over time.
