Short abstract and comments

Perfeccionism and Repetitive Negative Thinking (RNT) are both transdiagnostic processes contributing to multiple psychopathological conditions. Recently we have confirmed our hypothesis that RNT are a significant mediator of the relationship between perfectionism and psychological distress, as well as, with disordered eating behaviours and OC symptoms. The role of parental perfectionism in the development of children perfectionism and psychopathology levels warrants further study. On the other hand, the relationship between parental and children RNT levels and the role of the former on the children psychological distress levels have not been studied to date. Our aim is to analyse the role of parental perfectionism and RNT in the children emotion regulation and psychological distress/psychopathology symptoms (anxiety, depression, OC and eating disorders symptoms). We plan to develop a prospective study with a sample composed of college and high school students (aged? 15 years old; n=700) and their parents. Participants will be asked to fill in validated self-reported questionnaires to evaluate the personality, the cognitive and the psychopathological variables.

Potential uses/indications

To our knowledge, this is the first study aiming to clarify the role of parental perfectionism and RNT in the children emotion regulation and psychopathology. We do believe that a better understanding of the transgenerational aspects of these trandiagnostic processess may have valuable implications for the assessment and intervention of the psychopathological condition to which they have been associated.
