MOSMANN, Clarisse; COSTA, Crístofer Batista da; SILVA, Allana Gessiele Mello da  and  LUZ, Susana Konig. Children with clinical psychological symptoms: the discriminant role of conjugality, coparenting and parenting. Temas psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.1, pp. 429-442. ISSN 1413-389X.

Studies indicate that the mental health of children suffer positive and negative reverberations not only from the parent-child relationship, but also from marital and coparenting aspects. However, the nature and magnitude of these associations, when considered together, are not yet sufficiently understood, especially in the national context. This study aims to investigate in children and adolescents with and without clinical psychological symptoms, the discriminant role of the variables of their parent's marital, parental and coparental relations. The sample consists of 200 participants, with children 4-18 years old in a steady relationship and cohabiting with the offspring. Through discriminating statistical analysis the variables coparental competition, intrusiveness of parenting, child exposure to coparenting conflict, and marital conflict were identified as discriminant of children with clinical symptoms. The results indicate that the coparental subsystem prevails in this relationship, however the three dimensions analyzed interact interdependently in the psychological adjustment of children.
