Labilidad emocional/afectividad negativa y regulación emocional en hijos de madres ansiosas

Clotilde Sineiro García y María José Paz Míguez

Universidad de Santiago de Compostela

Se estudió el papel de labilidad emocional y afectividad negativa y de regulación emocional en la relación entre ansiedad rasgo materna y problemas de atención, sociales y sintomatología externalizante e internalizante de 275 niños de entre 6 y 11 años. Los resultados indicaron un efecto moderador directo de regulación emocional sobre la relación entre ansiedad materna y conductas externalizantes y que labilidad y afectividad negativa fue el mediador de la relación entre ansiedad materna y problemas de atención, sociales y quejas somáticas. Los vínculos de ansiedad materna con los síntomas de aislamiento y de ansiedad/depresión también fueron mediados por la labilidad y afectividad negativa. Esa mediación fue independiente de la regulación emocional en el primer caso y condicional a la misma en relación con la sintomatología ansioso/depresiva.

Emotional lability, negative affect and emotional regulation in children of anxious mothers. This study examined the role of emotional lability and negative affect and emotional regulation in the relation between maternal trait anxiety and attentional and social problems, and internalizing and externalizing symptoms of 275 six- to eleven-year-old children. The results indicated a direct moderating effect of emotional regulation in the relation between maternal anxiety and externalizing behaviour and that lability and negative affect moderated the relation between maternal anxiety and attention and social problems and somatic complaints. The links between maternal anxiety and withdrawal and anxiety/depression symptoms were also mediated by lability and negative affect. This mediation was independent of emotional regulation in the first case, and it depended on emotional regulation with regard to anxiety/depression symptoms.
