The Importance of Parental Attachment Status, Coping, and Narrative Skill for Co-Constructing Meaning Following Stressful Experiences

(p.196) 8 Creating a Context for Children's Memory
Emotion in Memory and Development

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores how parent-child conversations about past stressful events may facilitate children's meaning-making following stressful events. It presents findings demonstrating the importance of meaning-making for psychological well-being in the aftermath of stressors. It also explores two factors that contribute to differences in parents' ability to scaffold elaborative and emotionally integrated co-constructed narratives of past stressful events with their children: their attachment status and coping ability.

Keywords:   parental scaffolding, parent, child, conversations, stressful events, meaning-making process
