Research type Ph.D. thesis
Annotation The aim of the work is to describe the different communication strategies that parents use after the conflict and to identify their connection to internalised and externalised problems in children aged 9 to 12 years. The thesis consists of two consecutive studies. The aim of the first study was to comprehensively describe the different parental reactions to the child after the conflict, the need and the reaction of the child. The data was obtained as part of interviews with focus groups. The second study was conducted on a sample of 92 children aged 9-12 years and their parents. Its aim was to create a categorisation of post-conflict communication strategies and to verify the link between these categories and children's adaptation difficulties. The Children's Perception of Interparental Conflict (CPIC) method was used to determine the extent of the SDQ adaptation method (The Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire)
