Maternal Emotion Socialization and Child Emotion Regulation in At-Risk Populations
Wu, Qiong

2018, Doctor of Philosophy, Ohio State University, Human Ecology: Human Development and Family Science.
Children’s ability to regulate emotions is very important to their socioemotional development. Maternal emotion socialization is significant in influencing children’s emotion regulation, especially among at-risk populations. The current dissertation presents the results of three studies which investigated maternal emotion socialization practices and child emotion regulation, while considering the specific risk factor in these socialization processes.
In the first chapter, important concepts and theories concerning maternal emotion socialization, children’s emotion regulation, and factors influencing the socialization process are presented. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 present each individual study separately. In Chapter 2, the reciprocal relation between maternal emotion coaching and child emotionality was examined, while considering maternal parenting stress as a moderator on this reciprocal relation. In Chapter 3, the relations among maternal depressive symptoms, maternal rumination and child emotion regulation were explored. In Chapter 4, using a low-income, rural sample, the associations among emotion expression, behavioral regulation, and cortisol responses were explored, under different maternal parenting profiles. Finally, Chapter 5 presents an overall discussion of these findings with a focus on their research and clinical implications.
