LEUSIN, Joanna Ferreira; PETRUCCI, Giovanna Wanderley  and  BORSA, Juliane Callegaro. Family climate and the emotional and behavioral problems in childhood. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.1, pp. 49-61. ISSN 1677-2970.

This study investigated the relationship between family climate and emotional/behavioral problems in childhood. A total of 237 mothers, parents or caregivers of children enrolled in elementary schools in Rio de Janeiro participated in the study. Data were collected through the Family-Climate Inventory and the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL 6/18). Pearson's correlations and multiple linear regressions indicated a negative association between family support and cohesion and children's emotional/behavioral problems. Thus, conflict and family hierarchy were positively associated with these problems. The results showed the importance of the proximal processes, and especially the family climate, as an important source of protection for children's development.

Keywords : family; family climate; emotional and behavioral problems; children.
