Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) : Generalized Anxiety Disorder (Primary Caregiver), Wave 2, 1997-2000 by Felton Earls( )

114 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 2,688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) was a large-scale, interdisciplinary study of how families, schools, and neighborhoods affect child and adolescent development. One component of the PHDCN was the Longitudinal Cohort Study, which was a series of coordinated longitudinal studies that followed over 6,000 randomly selected children, adolescents, and young adults, and their primary caregivers over time to examine the changing circumstances of their lives, as well as the personal characteristics, that might lead them toward or away from a variety of antisocial behaviors. Numerous measures were administered to respondents to gauge various aspects of human development, including individual differences, as well as family, peer, and school influences. The Header Data files contain information regarding dates of Wave 1 and Wave 2 interviews as well as when interviews were coded, edited, and scored by research assistants and supervisors. It contains data for Cohorts 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR13627

Women in midlife by Grace K Baruch( Book )

8 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Study of Women In Midlife GRACE K. BARUCH AND JEANNE BROOKS-GUNN To describe the middle years-that relatively long span when one is neither young nor old-as a neglected period may no longer be accurate, given current scientific and popular interest in adult development and aging. But midlife is still too often seen merely as a kind of staging area on the way to old age, when one gathers one's forces and tries to stock up on assets-health, money, relationships-that will be needed for the rigors of the last phase of life. The middle years have been characterized more as a transition period than as a time of growth, satisfaction, and creativity. As this volume will show, although midlife is not without its difficulties, it is, for many women, a time of unexpected pleasure, even power. MAJOR THEMES A central theme of this volume is the impact of social change. The influence of economic conditions, of ideology, of the normative timing of such life events as age of marriage and childbearing, are addressed in many chapters from hlany different perspectives. Social changes are shown to have both negative and positive consequences. On the nega tive side, for example, the sex differential in life expectancy is a biosocial phenomenon that greatly restricts the availability of sexual partners-or, more precisely, heterosexual partners-for older women
Escape from poverty : what makes a difference for children? by P. Lindsay Chase-Lansdale( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poverty rate for children in the United States exceeds that of all other Western, industrialized nations except Australia. Moreover, poverty among children has increased substantially since 1970, affecting more than one-fifth of U.S. children. These persistent high rates require new ideas in both research and public policy. This volume presents such ideas. Four arenas of possible change are addressed: mothers' employment, child care, fathers' involvement, and access to health care. These four types of change have each been brought under the umbrella of the Family Support Act of 1988, after several years of debate over welfare reform. The goal of this landmark legislation is to enable poor families to escape poverty by requiring education, employment training opportunities for mothers, and improving child support by noncustodial fathers. Escape from Poverty is designed to examine the implications of these new policy-driven changes for children. The editors have developed an interdisciplinary perspective, involving demographers, developmental psychologists, economists, health experts, historians, and sociologists - a framework essential for addressing the complexities inherent in the links between the lives of poor adults and children in our society. This book will appeal to both researchers and policy makers
Transitions through adolescence : interpersonal domains and context( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on development during adolescence has flourished in the past decade, as scholars from many disciplines focused their attention on phenomena of maturation within different social contexts. This volume includes approaches from a variety of social science disciplines investigating adolescent transitions in three domains: the peer system, the family system, and school and work contexts. Different modes of investigation (e.g., survey research and ethnographic studies) and varieties of transitions that different adolescents experience add to the richness of the research tapestry presented. In addition to their focus on research, the chapters reflect recent advances in how adolescent transitions are conceptualized, strategies for interventions, and policy implications

First-year maternal employment and child development in the first 7 years by Jeanne Brooks-Gunn( Book )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using data from the first two phases of the NICHD Study of Early Child Care, the links between maternal employment in the first 12 months of life and cognitive, social, and emotional outcomes for children at age 3, age 4.5, and first grade are examined. Families in which mothers worked full time (55%), part time (23%) or did not work in the first year (22%) are compared. Most families involved non-Hispanic White children although some analyses did involve African-American children. Structural equation modeling results indicated that, on average, the associations between first-year maternal employment and later cognitive, social, and emotional outcomes are neutral because negative effects, where present, are offset by positive effects. The results confirmed that maternal employment in the first year of life may confer both advantages and disadvantages and that for the average non-Hispanic White child those effects balance each other

Numerous measures were administered to respondents to gauge various aspects of human development, including individual differences, as well as family, peer, and school influences. The Family Suicide Interview was administered to subjects' caregivers for Cohorts 0 to 15. The instrument was adapted from a section of the Major Depression Disorder module of the Diagnostic Interview Schedule for Children (DISC 4) and obtained information regarding any members of the subject's family who had committed suicide ...

Early maternal employment and family wellbeing by Pinka Chatterji( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study uses longitudinal data from the NICHD Study on Early Child Care (SECC) to examine the effects of maternal employment on family well-being, measured by maternal mental and overall health, parenting stress, and parenting quality. First, we estimate the effects of maternal employment on these outcomes measured when children are 6 months old. Next, we use dynamic panel data models to examine the effects of maternal employment on family outcomes during the first 4.5 years of children's lives. Among mothers of six month old infants, maternal work hours are positively associated with depressive symptoms and self-reported parenting stress, and negatively associated with self-rated overall health among mothers. Compared to mothers who are on leave 3 months after childbirth, mothers who are working full-time score 22 percent higher on the CES-D scale of depressive symptoms. However, maternal employment is not associated with the quality of parenting at 6 months, based on trained assessors' observations of maternal sensitivity. Moreover, during the first 4.5 years of life as a whole, we find only weak evidence that maternal work hours are associated with maternal health, and no evidence that maternal employment is associated with parenting stress and quality. We find that unobserved heterogeneity is an important factor in modeling family outcomes
