Intrusive Parenting focuses on parental psychological control, or intrusive, inhibiting, and manipulative parental behaviors and interaction patterns that negatively affect healthy child development. Contributors comprehensively review new and original research and present new methodologies and findings that enhance the further study of this important component of the socialization of children. They also integrate the historical conceptualizations of parental psychological control, identify the aspects of child or adolescent development these conceptualizations appear to have targeted, and review and discuss the known child and adolescent correlates of parental psychological control.

This volume will be an important and useful resource for scholars and others interested in parent -- child relationships.
