Caregiving Environmental Risk, Parenting, and Aggression from Infancy to Adolescence in a High-Risk Sample

Margaret Manges

This poster will discuss a study conducted by the Alberti Center of Bullying Abuse Prevention investigating the pathways to adolescent aggression via parenting, cumulative environmental risk, and childhood aggression in a high-risk sample. The study sought to investigate whether cumulative caregiving environmental risk (maternal psychopathology, maternal substance use, caregiving instability, and maternal education), and parenting (maternal harshness and maternal sensitivity) across early childhood was associated with aggression in early adolescence. It also investigates whether these associations are due to stable/enduring effects or if they are time specific/critical periods of development that exert influence on early adolescent aggression.
