EMOTIONALLY CHARGED AND SHARED MEMORY CONVERSATIONS OF MOTHER-CHILD DYADS: THE ROLE OF MOTHERS’ EARLY MALADAPTIVE SCHEMAS

Çeviker, Gizem
The current study examined the association between schema domains grouped by early maladaptive schemas of mothers and emotionally-charged memory characteristics of both mothers and their children. Mothers and their 4–5-year-old-children (N = 60) were invited to the Zoom meetings. Mothers were asked to reminisce separately about emotionally positive and emotionally negative memories and to fill out the Young Schema Questionnaire (YSQ). All conversations were transcribed verbatim and coded. Findings revealed that the disconnection & rejection schema domain predicted mothers’ usage of more negative emotion words and more unique emotion words and children’s usage of more negative emotion words during positively-charged memory conversations. The impaired autonomy & performance schema domain predicted mothers’ usage of less unique emotion words while predicting children’s usage of less negative emotion words during positively-charged memory conversations. Finally, the impaired limits schema domain predicted mothers’ usage of more positive emotion words during negatively-charged memory conversations. Children, who have mothers having schemas within this domain, used more unique emotion words during positively-charged memory conversations. When it comes to the gender of the child, daughters used less negative emotion words and unique emotion words if they have mothers who have higher scores in disconnection & rejection and impaired limits schema domain, whereas daughters used more negative emotion words if they have mothers who have higher scores in impaired autonomy & performance schema domains. All the results of the current study are discussed in light of the literature.

Son dönemlerde, çocuk istismarı / ihmalinin erişkinlik döneminde psikopatolojinin gelişimini nasıl öngördüğünü anlamaya yönelik çalışmaların sayısında artış bulunmaktadır. Bu çalışmalar daha çok bu ilişkide etkili olan mekanizmalarının saptanması ve değerlendirmesi üzerine odaklanmaktadır. Bu bakımdan, şema terapi, erken dönem uyumsuz şemalar aracılığıyla yetişkin dönem psikopatolojisi ve çocukluk istismarı ve ihmalin arasındaki ilişkiyi açıklamaktadır. Mevcut çalışmada, üniversite öğrencileri örnekleminde ...
The roles of maternal reminiscing style and self-construal on children’s independent memory skills in researcher-child recounting task
İlgün, Serhan Yağmur; Şahin Acar, Başak; Department of Psychology (2020-9)
The current study investigates the roles of maternal elaborativeness and self-construal style on children’s development of independent memory skills. It was aimed to examine the moderator roles of maternal individuation and balanced self-construal styles on the association between maternal reminiscing elaborativeness and children’s recounting elaborativeness. Five hundred and fifty-six participants consisting of 278 mothers (Mage = 35.96, SD = 4.75) and their preschoolers (Mmonth = 65.16, SD = 4.64) p...
Cognitive development of infants in institutional care settings, comparison with the low and high-SES family groups.
Ertekin, Zeynep; Kazak Berument, Sibel; Gunnar, Megan (null; 2019-09-01)
Research findings have indicated that children who were reared in institutions (e.g. orphanages) increasingly lag behind in cognitive development the longer they are in institutional care (Colvert et al., 2008; Smyke et al., 2007). Most of the studies were carried out with the previously institutionalized children. However, there is less study of infant’s development who are currently residing in institutions. Therefore, the aim of the current study is to compare cognitive development of infants currently i...
The Effect of maternal parentification history, maternal attachment styles, socioeconomic status and children’s self-construals on parentification roles and perceived parental caregiving
Karagöbek, Ayşe Büşra; Şahin Acar, Başak; Department of Psychology (2014)
This thesis study aimed to explore how well the maternal history of parentification, adult attachment styles, self-construal of children and SES of the family contribute to explain the variability on parentification behaviors of children. The sample comprised 92 mother-child dyads. Mothers’ mean age was 40.11 (SD = 5.56), and mean education level of 2.45 (SD = 1.25). Children’s mean age was 12.56 (SD = .63). Mothers were given the Filial Responsibility Scale- Adult Version (Jurkovic, Thirkield, and Morrell,...
