Most children with psychosocial problems do not present for treatment in mental health settings.
They are managed by primary care physicians.
Children with psychosocial problems often have parents and/or families with psychosocial distress.
The present study measured associations between parental reports of child, parent, and family functioning in individuals in the general population.
Participants were 226 parents of children, aged 2-16 years, who presented for routine primary care.
Parents reported on the psychosocial functioning of themselves, their child, and their family.
All correlations of measures were significant, ranging from. 55 to. 23.
Similar to data from psychiatric samples, the psychological functioning of children, parents, and families were significantly correlated.
Unlike in psychiatric settings, child mental health problems were not as closely related to parent or family distress as parent and family distress were related to each other and to child behavior problems.
