Purpose: This symposium provides an update on the outcomes from the University of Washington Family Health Project, a five-year longitudinal study of family processes and health. We focus on the health of African American wives, gender differences in cardiovascular outcome for couples, and gender differences in the association between emotion dysregulation and aggressive behaviors in elementary school-aged children.
Rationale: In this symposium, the speakers will present a series of data-based papers on the cardiovascular, depression, behavioral, and health results from the first time point of the Family Health Project at the University of Washington. Familial and social mechanisms can differ by sex and race, thus resulting in disparate outcomes in health and well-being of children and adult family members. Method: The ongoing longitudinal study is evaluating parenting behaviors that facilitate children's physical and mental health as the children make the transition from middle childhood to adolescence. The study also assesses the social and family process than influence the health and well-being of the parents. Family and marital biobehavioral interactions are assessed in both the home and the laboratory utilizing measures of emotion regulation, social stressors, behavior, health, and cardiovascular measures of autonomic arousal. Results: The symposium speakers will describe three of the major findings from the first time point of the study. The first speaker will describe the gender differences in children's reports of emotion regulation and teachers reports of those children's aggressive behaviors. The second speaker will discuss African American wives disproportionate levels of depressive symptoms and cardiovascular stress that may be due to social and familial stressors. The final speaker will present findings on gender differences in the association between marital distress, subclinical levels of depression, and cardiovascular measures of stress during marital conflict interactions in the laboratory. Implications: The central role of family processes in health outcomes has implications for nursing practice. The results from the Family Health Project highlight the importance of healthcare providers assessing the disruptive, and potentially harmful, health effects of family discord in their patients' lives.
