Tracy Gladstone, Ph.D.: Sibling Relationships in Children of Depressed Parents
Lunchtime Seminar March 17, 2011 (49:19 min.)
Research suggests that family variables are involved in the transmission of depression from parents to children. To date, marital and parent/child relationships have been explored in connection to youth depression, but the sibling relationship generally has been overlooked. In this presentation, Tracy Gladstone, Ph.D. will discuss sibling relationships as possible protective factors that moderate the association between parenting behaviors and internalizing outcomes in adolescents. Implications for prevention and intervention also will be discussed. Tracy Gladstone is a senior research scientist and director of the Robert S. and Grace W. Stone Primary Prevention Initiatives at the Wellesley Centers for Women, an assistant in psychology at Children’s Hospital, Boston, and an instructor at Harvard Medical School.
