Part II ISQ Club - Child Psychiatry (a)

33 posts in this topic

Part II ISQs will be posted regularly. You are encouraged to post a reply in the thread, stating whether you think an ISQ is true or false and why (eg. a short explanation, with reference to the textbook/clinical paper/web page you used). Please only deal with one ISQ in each post and include the question as the first line of your post.

Some questions are easier than others. Some questions may be phrased incorrectly - feel free to offer alternative questions.

1. Pre-school children are more suggestible than older children on most subjects

2. Child abuse is associated with an insecure pattern of attachment

3. Stranger anxiety precedes object constancy

4. Fear of heights is usually seen in children during the first year of life

5. Two thirds of mothers with postnatal depression bond poorly with their children.

6. Bottle-fed babies are more likely to have slow-to warm up temperament

7. Disorganised attachment disorder is associated with non-accidental injury

8. Moral development show gender differences

9. When a mother remarries, daughters experience more distress than sons

10. There is an increased chance of re-cohabiting if the father has been seeing the children weekly rather than no contact at all

11. The death of a parent is associated with school truancy

12. Girls whose fathers' die when they are young are more likely to be sexually active at a younger age

13. Young girls are twice as likely as young boys to be targetted by paedophiles

14. A child is likely to remember sexual abuse unless he is an infant at the time

15. If a 13 year old girl discloses sexual abuse by her father, an interview with an anatomically-correct doll is appropriate

16. Homosexuality in boys is associated with spending less time with the father.

17. Munchausun by proxy is classified as a factitious disorder in the ICD-10

Pre-school children are more suggestible than older children on most subjects

true

There are reliable age effects in children's suggestibility, with preschoolers being more vulnerable than older children to a host of factors that contribute to unreliable reports

(From the Amicus Brief for the Case of State of New Jersey v. Michaels, Presented by Committee of Concerned Social Scientists)

Moral development show gender differences

false

A second major critique of Kohlberg's work was put forth by Carol Gilligan

In her initial work, Gilligan emphasized the gender differences thought to be associated with these two orientations

Further research has suggested, however, that moral reasoning does not follow the distinct gender lines which Gilligan originally reported

also another paper lifton in pub med says no differences

When a mother remarries, daughters experience more distress than sons. - TRUE

According to goodman and Scott.

so it goes like this:

when parents divorce - boys more distressed

when mother remarries - girls more distressed

100% sure about this one ;)
