¿La depresión y ansiedad de las madres se relaciona con el consumo de drogas de sus hijos adolescentes?

Source: OAI

ABSTRACT La familia puede actuar como factor de riesgo o de protección frente a las conductas problema que aparecen durante la adolescencia, como el consumo de drogas. El objetivo del presente estudio es analizar si hay relación entre la presencia de problemas de depresión y ansiedad rasgo en las madres, y el consumo de drogas (tabaco, alcohol, cannabis y cocaí-na) en los hijos. La muestra está formada por 594 sujetos, 297 madres y 297 hijos, que fueron seleccionados a través de un muestreo aleatorio, estratificado por sexo y edad, de la comarca del Salnés (Pontevedra). Los resultados indican que las madres cuyos hijos han consumido alguna vez cannabis y/o cocaína, y que han fumado tabaco en los 6 últimos meses, tienen más sintomatología depresiva. Además es más probable que hayan consumido alcohol (copas) alguna vez en la vida y en los últimos 6 meses, y que se hayan emborrachado, los hijos cuyas madres tienen una puntua-ción por encima de la media de la población normal en ansiedad rasgo.

    ABSTRACT: To assess psychiatric morbidity associated with having no, one, or two parents with Substance Use Disorder (SUD), among patients receiving SUD care. Two measures of psychiatric morbidity included (a) current psychopathology and (b) lifetime use of psychiatric treatment. Alcohol-drug treatment programs were located in two university medical centers. Four hundred ninety-five voluntary patients aged 18 and older and non-adopted. Parental SUD was directly related to (a) more current psychiatric symptoms, both self-rated and psychiatrist-rated and (b) greater likelihood of ever having ever received psychiatric treatment. Among those who had ever received psychiatric care, the number of psychotropic medications was related to parental SUD. Number of admissions, venues, visits/days, and cost of psychiatric care were not associated with parental SUD. Extent of parental SUD was related to increased psychiatric morbidity.

    ABSTRACT: To examine the association of current smoking behavior of adolescents and young adults with the smoking behavior of their parents, siblings, friends and spouses. Using survey data from a large twin-family sample, the association between the smoking behavior of participants and that of their family members, friends and spouses was investigated by calculating the relative risk. To disentangle sex and age differences, calculations were carried out separately for males and females and for three different age groups: 12-15, 16-20 and 21-40 years old. The smoking behavior of the participants was significantly influenced by the smoking behavior of parents, siblings and friends, but all relative risks decreased with age. No differences in relative risk were found between having older or younger smoking siblings. Within each age group, the relative risk to smoke when having a smoking friend was comparable to the relative risk to smoke when having a smoking same-age and same-sex sibling. For the older participants, the relative risk to smoke was higher for monozygotic (MZ) twins with a smoking co-twin than for dizygotic (DZ) twins with a smoking co-twin. Most findings were sex-dependent: same-sex smoking family members influenced smoking behavior more than opposite-sex family members. The significant association of the smoking behavior of spouses decreased with age, which suggests that assortment for smoking is based on similarity at the time dating began. The results highlight the importance of both social and genetic influences on smoking behavior, with genetic influences increasing with the age of the participant.

    ABSTRACT: To test a theoretical model of how ethnic pride and self-control are related to risk and protective factors. A community sample of 670 African American youth (mean age = 11.2 years) were interviewed in households. Measures of cigarette smoking, alcohol use, and sexual behavior (lifetime to past month). Structural modeling analyses indicated parenting was related to self-control and self-esteem, and racial socialization was related to ethnic pride. Self-control and self-esteem variables were related to levels of deviance-prone attitudes and to perceptions of engagers in, or abstainers from, substance use and sexual behavior. The proximal factors (behavioral willingness, resistance efficacy, and peer behavior) had substantial relations to the criterion variables. Participant gender and parental education also had several paths in the model. Results were generally similar for the 2 outcome behaviors. In this population, self-esteem and self-control are related to parenting approaches and have pathways to attitudes and social perceptions that are significant factors for predisposing to, or protecting against, early involvement in substance use and sexual behavior.
