Abstract Share this page

This chapter examines how studying children's immediate processing of interparental conflict and the transformation of those experiences into more long-lasting mental structures may illuminate the impact of interparental conflict on child adjustment. First, the authors describe theory and research on social cognitive processes proposed to occur when children observe interparental conflict, and then consider how witnessing interparental conflict may affect the development of children's beliefs and expectations regarding interpersonal relationships. They then discuss some of the challenges involved in assessing social cognitive processes and close by identifying directions for future research in this area.
