|Title:||The influence of gender, age, Psychological resilience and family interaction factors upon anxiety and depression in non-autism spectrum disorder siblings of children with an autism spectrum disorder||Contributor(s):||Bitsika, Vicki (author); Sharpley, Christopher (author) ; Mailli, Rebecca (author)||Publication Date:||2015||DOI:||10.1080/03069885.2014.950944||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/18270||Abstract:||The influence of gender, age, Psychological resilience and family interaction factors upon generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) and major depressive disorder (MDD) was investigated in 75 non-autism spectrum disorder (NASD) siblings who had a brother or sister with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). GAD and MDD were much more prevalent than in comparable age group samples, and adolescent females had the highest MDD rates. Several Psychological resilience skills were significantly associated with lower GAD and MDD, particularly being able to recognise mistakes in their thinking (for children) and being able to remain in control of their anger (for adolescents). Suggestions are made for ways of encouraging NASD siblings to develop skills that may assist them in avoiding these disorders.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 43(2), p. 216-228||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||1469-3534
