The indirect effects of adolescents perceptions about father typology on their adjustment through emotion regulation
The present research examines the relationship among 186 Greek adolescents’ perceptions about father typology (authoritative, authoritarian, permissive, strict), emotion regulation (cognitive reappraisal, emotion suppression) and psychosocial adjustment (externalizing / internalizing problems, prosocial behavior). Perceived authoritative father style was negatively associated with behavior problems (internalizing and externalizing) and with expressive suppression, whereas perceived authoritarian and permissive father style negatively with cognitive reappraisal. Perceived authoritative father style correlated positively with cognitive reappraisal, whereas permissive father style negatively, and positively with prosocial behavior. Emotion regulation strategies were linked to internalizing and externalizing problems. Gender was found to differentiate internalizing problems and prosocial behavior in favor of girls who, in addition, perceive their fathers as more permissive compared to boys who had higher scores in expressive suppression. Finally, low cognitive reappraisal and high expressive suppression were found to mediate the associations between perceived authoritative and permissive father styles and externalizing and internalizing problems. The findings are discussed in terms of their practical implications.
