In recent years, parenting research has demonstrated that toxic stressors such as intimate partner violence, postpartum depression, and substance abuse significantly diminish the quality of mother-child interaction.
Moreover, research has shown that childhood is a sensitive period, during which cumulative exposure to adversities inhibits relationship quality, mother-child interaction and subsequent child health and developmental outcomes.
Researchers have focused upon identifying populations at risk and interventions to improve related outcomes.
Parenting and Child Development: Issues and Answers encompasses a collection of seminal studies by renowned researcher Dr Nicole Letourneau.
The book starts with an examination of the mechanisms by which parent-child interaction and child developmental outcomes are diminished among high-risk families.
Promising results of peer support and reflective functioning interventions to promote parent-child interaction and healthy child development are then presented.
Finally, the book includes studies that investigate the relationship between genetics, parent-child relationships and child behaviour.
