Intrusive Parenting: How Psychological Control Affects Children and Adolescents
Brian K. Barber
American Psychological Association, 2002 - Family & Relationships - 309 pages
This volume is intended to be a useful resource for scholars and others interested in parent-child relationships. It highlights an area that has to date received inconsistent and inadequate attention, and it provides a source that both thoroughly reviews the literatures on parental psychological control and presents new methodologies and findings that enhance the study of this intrusive type of parenting. It is hoped that the volume will stimulate interest and much more work on a construct that appears to be an important component of the socialization of children. It is also hoped that the volume will stimulate thought and research focused on the intrusion into the psychological autonomy of children, adolescents, and other age groups in the variety of contexts that make up human social life.
