Anxious and depressive symptoms and children's judgements of their own and others' interpretation of ambiguous social scenarios.

Anxious and depressive symptoms and children's judgements of their own and others' interpretation of ambiguous social scenarios.
Anxious and depressive symptoms and children's judgements of their own and others' interpretation of ambiguous social scenarios.
This study investigated associations between anxious and depressive symptoms in 7- and 9-year-olds and their judgements of intention. It asked children to judge how a protagonist (other judgement) and they themselves (self-judgement) would interpret the intention of a second character, where this intention was ambiguously negative or benign. The results showed that levels of self-report depressive symptoms predicted an increase in the number of negative interpretations for self (but not for other) judgements. In comparison, increased levels of parent-report anxiety symptoms predicted an increase in number of negative interpretations for other (but not for self) judgements.

Abstract

This study investigated associations between anxious and depressive symptoms in 7- and 9-year-olds and their judgements of intention. It asked children to judge how a protagonist (other judgement) and they themselves (self-judgement) would interpret the intention of a second character, where this intention was ambiguously negative or benign. The results showed that levels of self-report depressive symptoms predicted an increase in the number of negative interpretations for self (but not for other) judgements. In comparison, increased levels of parent-report anxiety symptoms predicted an increase in number of negative interpretations for other (but not for self) judgements.
