Early to Middle Childhood: Anxiety Disorders

According to Benoit et al. (2016), anxiety disorders in childhood are associated with the crucial impairments in many domains of functioning which give the risk for depression and probably substance use later in their life. Mostly, during the early childhood, low levels of parental autonomy granted decrease the control perceived by the child later leading to an increase in negative emotion to children. However, during the child development, the perceived control can become more stable revealed as the characteristics amplifying the relationship between the child negative emotion and the parental autonomy granting. The aim of the study is to test the medication linking the parental autonomy granting and the child perceived control with the child emotional reactivity and regulation in anxious youth.

A study was conducted using 106 anxious youth and their primary caregivers and was assessed based on the previous treatments. All the children were then administered a structured interview involving parents’ child interaction task and were behaviorally coded for parental autonomy granting. They were then reported to have control of emotional reactivity which is the anxiety and the physical arousal, regulation strategy in daily negative life events. Thus, the high levels of physiological responding and the low of acceptance were recorded in children low in perceived control or the negative life events.

The main summary on the idea of the author is both children perceived control and parental autonomy granting control plays crucial roles in daily emotional experiences of clinically anxious children. My wonder is how and why has the evidence for the dedication model not found? What are the strategies for the emotional regulation in the perceived control over the negative life events?
