Chemical compound and disease context of Family Relations

  • The intervention was effective at reducing EE and improving family relationships [13].
  • OBJECTIVE: This study proposes to test the hypothesis that early loss of a parent, coupled with poor quality family relationships, would result in long-term increased cardiovascular and cortisol reactivity to stress [14].
  • PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Clozapine was significantly more effective than haloperidol on measures of symptoms (p = .02) and side effects (p < .0001), with nonsignificant trends in the positive direction on community role functioning (p = .06), family relationships (p = .23), social relationships (p = .30), and daily activities (p = .20) [15].
  • The present research examined the correlations between types of family relationships and adolescents' beliefs about their own health. "Healthy" adolescents (N=765) completed both the Multidimensional Health Locus of Control questionnaire and Olson's scale assessing family cohesion and adaptability [16].
  • Focus group participants reported that learning about their DES exposure was devastating; they experienced strains in their family relationships, emotional shock, a feeling that their health concerns were not appreciated by others and, to some degree, a sense of social isolation [17].

Biological context of Family Relations


Gene context of Family Relations

  • Modeling ADHD child and family relationships [19].
  • Overall, study results suggest that undergoing genetic testing and learning ones BRCA1/2 status may affect family relationships [20].
  • Multiple regression analyses showed that adherence (P less than .029) and stress (P less than .052) were directly related to metabolic control and that knowledge about IDDM (P less than .029), family relations (P less than .099), and adolescent age (P less than .086) had direct effects on adherence [21].
  • The PACS scales of defiance and hyperactivity, and similar subscales from Conners' Teacher Rating Scale, were tested against laboratory and clinical measures of activity, attention, cognitive performance, psychosocial background and family relationships [22].
  • In addition, Eating Attitudes Test scores correlated significantly with hostility toward child, sibling disability, parental overprotection, inappropriate parental pressures, and negative changes in family relationships [23].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Family Relations

  • Specifically, patients' preferences for interventions addressing education (e.g. the disease and its treatment), self-management (e.g. pain-management, exercise) and the consequences (e.g. emotions, impact on work, family relationships) of RA were examined [24].
  • According to the Family Relations Test, however, the emotional involvement in the eldest non-retarded sibling differs statistically significant from that of the corresponding child in the control group and especially so with respect to negative incoming feelings [25].
