We examined distributions of remembered negative and positive life events across the lifespan in a sample of adults in middle and old age. Distributions of positive, but not negative, life events showed a significant reminiscence bump, replicating earlier findings. Gender differences occurred with respect to distribution of memories of positive life events of the first four decades of life. Furthermore, we found substantial associations of number and valence of remembered life events with future time perspective and functions of autobiographical memory to create meaning, which remained significant after controlling for age and health. The number and valence of negative and positive life events across the lifespan reflect, to a certain extent, the age and time perspective of the remembering individual. [less ▲]

Despite its importance for basic and applied psychology, only a few longitudinal studies have examined whether parental differential treatment (PDT) is a persistent or a transient phenomenon, these studies being confined to childhood or adolescence. Based on latent state-trait theory, the present study identified the amount of variance in three dimensions of perceived PDT in middle adulthood attributable to stable interindividual differences (trait variance) and to intraindividual changes (state variance). At two occasions of measurement (2 years apart), 709 middle-aged adults rated how often they and a sibling currently received parental recognition, nurture, and demand to assume filial responsibility. Tests of latent state-trait models for these three dimensions of PDT by structural equation modeling revealed that trait variance represented the largest proportion of the systematic variance in all observed indicators of perceived maternal and paternal differential treatment. Yet there was a considerable increase in state variance for the dimension of differential parental demand for assuming responsibility. Results are discussed with respect to the conditions accounting for the high overall stability of actual and/or perceived PDT in adulthood, and different approaches for determining their role are proposed.

Emotions toward a relationship partner provide relevant and specific information about relationship quality. Based on this assumption the present study was performed to identify different types of emotional relationship quality of middle-aged adult children with their aging parents. This was done by cluster analytic procedures in a sample of 1,208 middle-aged adult children (482 men, 726 women). Using ratings of positive and negative emotions toward their mother and their father as grouping variables, the same four-cluster solution emerged for both the child-mother relationship and the child-father relationship. Clusters were labelled as amicable, disharmonious, detached, and ambivalent relationships. Results showed that especially amicable relationships clearly prevailed followed by ambivalent, detached, and disharmonious relationships. Clusters differed significantly with respect to gender of adult child, willingness to support, expected parental support, and overt conflicts. In a cross-classification of cluster membership regarding the child-mother relationship (4 clusters) and the child-father relationship (4 clusters), all possible 16 combinations were observed, with a considerable degree of divergence regarding the type of relationship quality within the same family. Results are discussed with respect to types of emotional relationship quality, within family differences, and the intrafamilial regulation of relationship quality. [less ▲]

Based on analyses of the cognitive-evaluative structure of guilt feelings and of the normative context of parent-child-relations, the present study aimed at identifying predictors of parent-related feelings of guilt in a sample of middle-aged children. 300 respondents (daughters and sons) aged 41 to 51 years were enrolled in a questionnaire study. Though, parent-related feelings of guilt were rather infrequent on the level of means, substantial interindividual differences were observed. These differences could be predicted from two sets of variables, (1) children’s self-perceived violations of filial obligations and (2) reproachful behaviours on the side of parents. About one fourth of the variance in feelings of guilt could be explained. Feelings of guilt were particularly frequent in children (in particular daughters) who had little (superficial) contact with their parents, and who avoided conflict with their parents, when – at the same time – parents were rated to be low in subjective well-being, and whose parents lived alone. In addition, feelings of guilt were enhanced with an increase in parent’s bossiness, especially when addressed to children scoring low in self-esteem. Results are discussed with respect to additional self-perceived violations of filial obligations and cognitive appraisals of responsibility, that could further improve the prediction of parent-related feelings of guilt.

Das individuelle Bewaeltigungsverhalten im Umfeld einer Krebserkrankung wird analysiert. Dabei wird insbesondere auf die Rolle von temporalen und sozialen Vergleichsprozessen eingegangen. Diese beiden Vergleichsprozesse stehen im Dienste der kognitiven Adaptation an die durch die Krankheit veraenderte Lebenssituation und lassen sich in einem uebergeordneten heuristischen Rahmenmodell des Bewaeltigungsprozesses als Versuche der Realitaetskonstruktion beschreiben. Ein solches Modell, in dem die individuelle Bewaeltigung in erster Linie als Prozess der Informationsverarbeitung konzeptualisiert wird, der dem Primat der Emotionsregulation und der Aufrechterhaltung der individuellen Handlungsfaehigkeit dienen soll, wird vorgestellt.

The ‘‘developmental stake hypothesis’’ has been proposed for the frequent finding that aged parents consistently report higher levels of closeness to and consensus with their (adult) children than these children do themselves. This study investigated an alternative hypothesis: Drawing on research on prosocial behaviour in old age, it proposes that the aged tend to construe all social relationships in a positively biased manner (‘‘leniency hypothesis’’). Using a quasi-experimental (vignette) approach, scenarios describing two family members discussing a controversial issue were presented to 809 middle-aged (aged 40 to 50 years) and aged subjects (65 to 75 years). The lineage composition of the dyads of family members in the scenarios (i.e. aged parent and adult child vs. two adult siblings) was varied systematically as a between-subjects factor, and the controversial issue was varied as a within-subjects factor. Dependent variables were the participants’ evaluative and prescriptive judgements on the protagonists’ behaviour and the quality of their relationship. Overall, results showed that the aged perceived all scenarios in a significantly more positive light than middle-aged participants, regardless of their lineage composition. Thus, a ‘‘positivity bias’’ was observed in judgements of both intergenerational as well as intragenerational dyads, and it is concluded that the leniency hypothesis provides a better account of these findings than the stake hypothesis.

The prevalence of inter- and intragenerational conflicts is assessed in a large sample of the middle-aged and old-aged German population. N = 4017 adult subjects ranging in age from 40 to 85 years indicated current personal conflicts with regard to the relative age of conflict partners (e.g., younger, older, same age), intra- vs. extrafamilial location of conflict, and conflict behaviour. More than ten percent of the subjects reported current intergenerational conflicts, involving family members more often than persons not belonging to one’s family. The prevalence of intergenerational conflicts increased and prevalence of intragenerational conflicts decreased with respondents’ age. Women were more frequently engaged in conflicts with older persons, especially family members. Results are discussed with respect to underlying processes that could mediate the covariation between sociodemographic variables and frequency of intergenerational conflicts. A strategy for further research on intergenerational conflicts is sketched. [less ▲]
