Chrystyna Kouros, Ph.D., focuses on understanding depressive symptoms and depression in the context of family stress.
Children suffer consequences, too, when mom and dad argue or have tension in their relationship, experts warn. Dads, in particular, let the negative emotions and tension from their marriage spill over and harm the bond they have with their child, says a new study’s lead author, psychologist Chrystyna D. Kouros, Southern Methodist University, Dallas.
Some adolescents who suffer with symptoms of depression also may be at risk for developing anxiety, according to a new study of children’s mental health. The study found that among youth who have symptoms of depression, the risk is most severe for those who have one or more of three risk factors, said psychologist Chrystyna D. Kouros, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, who led the study.
