Summary / Abstract:

LTStraipsnyje panaudoti septynerius metus vykdyto tyrimo duomenys. Tiriamieji – 695 mokyklinio amžiaus (7–10 metų) vaikai (pirmojo vertinimo metu). Atliekant tyrimą, naudotos dvi metodikos: Vaiko elgesio skalė (angl. Child Behavior Checklist, CBCL4/18). Šią skalę pildė tėvai. Antroji metodika – Jaunimo savianalizės klausimynas (angl. Youth Self-Report, YSR11/18). Šį klausimyną pildė vaikai. Naudojant šias skales, vertinta: nerimas/depresija, nusišalinimas, somatiniai skundai, agresija, delinkventinis elgesys. Išanalizavus tėvų vertinimus, nustatyta, kad jų nuomonė stabili vertinant vaikų elgesį. Be to, tyrimo duomenys patvirtino, kad paaugliai suteikia ypač svarbios informacijos apie savo elgesį ir patiriamus sunkumus, kurių didesnė dalis lieka tėvų nepastebėta. Paauglių atsakymai rodo didesnį nerimo/depresijos, atsitraukimo, somatinių skundų, agresijos ir delinkventinio elgesio lygį lyginant su tėvų vertinimais. Toks atitikimas užfiksuotas ir kitose tirtųjų imtyse. [Iš leidinio]

ENThis study investigated the inter-rater agreement between parents’ reports and adolescents’ self-reports of behavioral and emotional problems using cross-informant scales both cross-sectionally and longitudinally. Material and methods. Subjects were participants in a longitudinal study of 695 school-aged children from the general population, aged 7–10 during the first assessment. They were evaluated with the Child Behavior Checklist (completed by parents) and later, from 11 year-old, with the Youth Self-Report. The scoring format and factor structure of the two assessment instruments are similar; cross-informant syndromes constructed from the two instruments are based on parents’ and self-report information. Measures included anxiety/depression, withdrawal, somatic complaints, aggression, delinquency and attention problems. Results. Findings indicate that there is longitudinal stability in parents’ ratings of children’s behavioral problems. Our findings also confirm that adolescents, especially as they grow older, are indispensable informants about their problem behavior, because many of the problems they experience remain unnoticed by their parents. Adolescents reported higher levels of anxiety/ depression, withdrawal, somatic complaints, aggression and delinquency, but lower levels of attention problems than their parents. Conclusions. Our results reflect the typical level of parent-child agreement in reports of problem behaviors as it occurs in other samples. Other investigators could use these data as a background, for testing of longitudinal associations and parent-child agreements in different samples. [From the publication]
