Early analyses from this dataset were presented at the 2013 Convention of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies in Nashville, TN.
Study procedures were approved by the Boston University Charles River Campus Institutional Review Board.
Recent conceptualizations of child anxiety disorders have implicated emotion dysregulation in the development, maintenance, and/or exacerbation of these conditions. Assessment of emotion regulation in children often relies upon self-reports, but research suggests a multi-informant approach is optimal in the assessment of youth. The current study evaluates the preliminary psychometric properties of a parent-report adaptation of the Emotion Expression Scale for Children (EESC-P) in a sample of parents (n = 78) seeking treatment for their child’s anxiety disorder (Mchild age = 11.04, SD = 2.96, 46.8 % female). Findings support the internal consistency and predictive validity of the EESC-P. Parent–child concordance was low-to-moderate within a subset of participants whose children completed the EESC. Scores on the EESC-P did not differ as a function of age or gender. Results preliminarily support the use of the EESC-P as part of a multi-informant assessment of emotional awareness in children with anxiety disorders.
