Article
Anxiety symptoms related to health are often present in populations coping with chronic illness, and among women living with HIV (WLWH), anxiety has been linked to a range of negative outcomes. This paper describes the validation of a four‐item instrument designed to measure health‐related anxiety (HRA) in WLWH by assessing the impact of thinking a...
Article
Mothers living with HIV (MLWH) experience stressors inherent to parenting, often within a context characterized by poverty, stigma, and/or limited social support. Our study assessed the relationship between parenting stress and child perceptions of family functioning in families with MLWH who have healthy school-age children. MLWH and their childre...
Article
A pilot study was conducted to assess the effects of the IMAGE pilot intervention (Improving Mothers' parenting Abilities, Growth, and Effectiveness) on mothers living with HIV (MLH). Based on Fisher and Fisher's IMB model [1992. Changing AIDS risk behavior. Psychological Bulletin , 111, 455-474], the intervention focused on self-care and parenting...
Article
Past research has shown that young children affected by maternal HIV present with elevated stress/anxiety and negative well-being. This pilot intervention for children aged 7-14 affected by maternal HIV targeted improving positive child-mother communication, improving HIV/AIDS knowledge and reducing anxiety (especially related to transmission), and...

Adolescent children of mothers with HIV face a host of stressors that place them at increased risk for poor outcomes. Using covariance structure analysis, this study examines adolescent risk outcomes and their relationships to maternal health, as well as the potentially protective factors of family environment and self-competence. The final model i...

The Teaching, Raising, And Communicating with Kids (TRACK) program was a longitudinal pilot-trial intervention designed to assist mothers living with HIV (MLHs) to disclose their serostatus to their young children (age 6-12 years). MLH and child dyads (N = 80 dyads) were recruited and randomized to intervention or control; the intervention group ha...

Parental HIV infection has been associated with negative outcomes for children, and parenting skills appear to be one mechanism operating in that association. The present study focuses on the relations between maternal stress, parenting, and child functioning among families where the mother is living with HIV. Sixty-nine mothers with at least one c...
Article
The influence of parenting skills on adolescent outcomes among children affected by maternal HIV/AIDS (N = 118, M age = 13) was investigated. Among families with more frequent family routines, over time adolescents showed lower rates of aggression, anxiety, worry, depression, conduct disorder, binge drinking, and increased self-concept. Among famil...
Conference Paper
Background: Parenting skills, such as family routines and parental monitoring, may serve as a protective factor for early/middle adolescents affected by maternal HIV/AIDS. Methods: Mothers living with HIV/AIDS in Los Angeles County with a well child (age 10 - 17 years old), were interviewed (English or Spanish) at 6-month intervals (118 mother/ch...
Article
Provides information on pharmacologic therapies for depression for use by gerontology professionals in treating elderly patients. It is noted that the use of antidepressants in this population entails side effects that are more salient, intolerable, and dangerous than in younger patients. It is noted that tricyclic antidepressants are usually the 1...
Article
It is unresolved whether avoidant personality disorder (APD) is an independent schizophrenia (Sz)-spectrum personality disorder (PD). Some studies find APD and social anxiety symptoms (Sxs) to be separable dimensions of psychopathology in relatives (Rels) of schizophrenics while other studies find avoidant Sxs to be correlated with schizotypal and...
Article
Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) scores were examined for 50 parents of children with an onset of schizophrenia prior to 14 years of age, 153 parents of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and 168 parents of community comparison children. The parents were participants in the UCLA Family Study. The mean s...
Article
This study examined the validity of the family history method for diagnosing schizophrenia, schizophrenia-related psychoses, and schizophrenia-spectrum personality disorders in first-degree relatives of schizophrenia probands. This is the first large-scale study that examined the validity of the family history method for diagnosing DSM-III-R person...
Article
Full-text available
We tested the hypotheses that certain neurocognitive impairments index genetic liability to schizophrenia and that childhood-onset schizophrenia (COS) is a variant of adult-onset schizophrenia (AOS) by determining whether parents of COS probands show the types of neurocognitive impairments found in relatives of AOS probands. Parents of COS probands...
Article
Schizotypal personality features and certain neurocognitive deficits have been shown to aggregate in the relatives of schizophrenic patients, supporting the view that both are likely to reflect genetic contributions to liability to schizophrenia. Within the relatives of schizophrenic patients, however, the interrelationships between these potential...
Article
Full-text available
This study tested the hypothesis that childhood-onset schizophrenia (COS) is a variant of adult-onset schizophrenia (AOS) by determining if first-degree relatives of COS probands have an increased risk for schizophrenia and schizotypal and paranoid personality disorders. Relatives of COS probands (n = 148) were compared with relatives of attention-...
Article
The dimensions and limits of the concept of schizotypy are examined using an exploratory factor analysis of the 36 signs and symptoms in the Cluster A DSM-III-R personality disorders as well as those in Borderline Personality Disorder and Avoidant Personality Disorder in the 307 first-degree relatives and half-siblings of 123 probands with schizoph...
Article
A series of six studies were conducted to explore the structure underlying rape myths and to develop the 45-item Illinois Rape Myth Acceptance Scale (''IRMA''). In the first study, 604 participants (mean age 18.8 years, 53% women) rated their level of agreement with 95 pretested rape myth statements. Exploratory and confir-matory multivariate analy...
