AITANA researchers examined during the COVID-19 pandemic how parental stressors affected their children’s emotional symptomatology. Specifically, they examined how parental stress mediated when parents applied emotional regulation strategies and how this related to children’s affective symptomatology. The study, recently published in the journal Psychology, Society & Education, has shown that parental stress is a mediating variable between parental emotional regulation and children’s psychological symptoms. The emotional regulation strategy that was associated with lower levels of parental stress and fewer psychological symptoms in children was cognitive reappraisal. The study provides new and relevant information by showing the relationship between parental psychological variables with emotional symptomatology of children and adolescents during a period of great psychological impact.
