1. Phelps, Randi A. An Investigation of Maternal Biological Indices of Anxiety Proneness as Predictors of Toddlers' Dysregulated Fear through Maternal Protective Parenting Behaviors.

Degree: MA, Psychology, 2017, Miami University

To help determine who is at heightened risk for anxiety development, research has investigated behaviorally and biologically-based temperament predictors of subsequent disorder. The current study focuses on toddler dysregulated fear (DF) as the outcome variable of interest. Although DF may be the strongest predictor of anxiety development, it is unclear how DF develops. Maternal biological indices of reactivity (i.e., cortisol) have been associated with intergenerational transmission of anxiety risk, but have not been investigated in association with DF. Neural markers of regulation (i.e., delta-beta coupling: “coupling”) were also investigated to better understand how intergenerational transmission might be occurring. The current study investigated cortisol reactivity and coupling as predictors of toddlers’ DF, as mediated by maternal protective parenting. Study aims tested whether protective parenting mediated the relations between maternal reactivity/regulation and child age 3 DF above and beyond age 2 DF. Results suggested that maternal cortisol reactivity and coupling do not significantly predict change in toddler DF through maternal protective parenting behaviors. Furthermore, cortisol reactivity and delta-beta coupling did not additively predict toddlers’ DF through maternal protective parenting behaviors. Future directions include investigating toddler DF’s influence on maternal protective parenting behaviors in the context of indices of regulation and reactivity.
