GABRIELA MELLO, Sabbag  and  BOLSONI-SILVA, Alessandra Turini. The relation between social educative skills and maternal educative practices with adolescent behavior problems. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.2, pp. 423-441. ISSN 1808-4281.

This study correlated maternal social educative skills, negative maternal practices and social skills and behavior problems in male and female adolescents groups of risk and not risk for behavior problems. The maternal behavior was investigated by Parental Educative Social Skills Script Interview (RE-HSE-P) and by Parental Styles Inventory (IEP). The adolescent behavior had been evaluated through the RE-HSE-P and of the Child Behavior Checklist. 24 mothers and adolescents of the groups of risk and not risk had participated of the study. The results had pointed to positive correlations between the maternal social educative skills in the RE-HSE-P and maternal practices in the IEP. The comparisons between the groups of risk and not risk showed that the mother´s risk group had presented more often negative practices and it’s teenagers had showed less social skills and more behavior problems. Divergences between maternal practices applied to boys and girls were not found. Also it did not have differences about the social skills and the behavior problems in boys and girls.
