Parent-Child Interaction and Parent-Child Relations in Child Development

Excerpt

This volume contains the papers presented at the seventeenth Minnesota Symposia on Child Psychology, held October 28-30, 1982, at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. As has been the tradition for this annual series, the faculty of the Institute of Child Development invited internationally eminent researchers to present their research and to consider problems of mutual concern to scientists studying development. For this symposium, there also were commentary papers prepared by members of the University of Minnesota community.

The theme of the seventeenth symposium, and the present volume, was parent-child interaction and parent-child relations. The choice of this topic reflects a long history of concern about parental influence on development, as well as a number of new issues and methods for addressing them. Some of the investigations that were discussed focused on determinants of parent-child interaction, whereas others focused on its consequences. The volume thus includes work involving fairly micro analyses of the very nature of interaction and the development of relationships, as well as more molar examinations of the impact of interaction or lack of it. In addition, the volume truly represents a life-span compendium. One chapter presents research on parent-child interactions with infants, while another presents work on parent-child interactions between adults. Finally, the breadth of perspectives that were brought to bear here are reflected in the commentaries, in which psychological, sociological, and family systems perspectives were considered.

The main presenters were Dr. Ina Užgiris of Clark University, Dr. Marilyn Shatz of the University of Michigan, Dr. Alison Clarke-Stewart of the University of Chicago, Dr. Lois Hoffman of the University of Michigan, and Dr. Gunhild Hagestad . . .
