Objective and subjective measures of sleep among preschoolers: Disentangling attachment security and dependency
Attachment and sleep among toddlers: disentangling attachment security and dependency.
Many scholars have proposed that parent-child attachment security should favor child sleep. Research has yet, however, to provide convincing support for this hypothesis. The current study used objective measures of sleep ...
Attachment, sexual assertiveness and sexual outcomes in women with provoked vestibulodynia and their partners : a mediation model
Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) is a prevalent women’s sexual pain disorder, which is associated with sexual function difficulties. Attachment theory has been used to understand adult sexual outcomes, providing a useful ...
Partner behavioral responses to pain mediate the relationship between partner pain cognitions and pain outcomes in women with provoked vestibulodynia
Partner behavioral responses to pain can have a significant impact on patient pain and depression, but little is known about why partners respond in specific ways. Using a cognitive-behavioral model, the present study ...
A prospective two-year examination of cognitive and behavioral correlates of provoked vestibulodynia outcomes
Background: Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) is a common genital pain disorder in women that is associated with sexual dysfunction and lowered sexual satisfaction. A potentially applicable cognitive-behavioral model of chronic ...
Are primary and secondary provoked vestibulodynia two different entities? A comparison of pain, psychosocial and sexual characteristics
Introduction Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) is suspected to be the most frequent cause of vulvodynia in premenopausal women. Based on the onset of PVD relative to the start of sexual experience, PVD can be divided into ...
Sleeping Toward Behavioral Regulation: Relations Between Sleep and Externalizing Symptoms in Toddlers and Preschoolers
Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the concurrent and longitudinal relations between sleep and externalizing symptoms among young children. Method: Sixty-four families (mostly Caucasian; 36 boys) were ...
A secure base from which to regulate: Attachment security in toddlerhood as a predictor of executive functioning at school entry
In light of emerging evidence suggesting that the affective quality of parent-child relationships may relate to individual differences in young children's executive functioning (EF) skills, the aim of this ...
Stability in maternal autonomy support and child executive functioning
The purpose of this study was to examine the role of early and current maternal autonomy support, and of its stability over time, in predicting child executive functioning (EF). Seventy-eight mother–child dyads participated ...
Neural changes associated with semantic processing in healthy aging despite intact behavioral performance
Semantic memory recruits an extensive neural network including the left inferior prefrontal cortex (IPC) and the left temporoparietal region, which are involved in semantic control processes, as well as the anterior ...
