Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) During toddlerhood, parents often face toddler’s challenging behaviors, such as temper tantrums (Fauziah et al., 2019). Challenging episodes of disruptive behaviors can decrease parental self-esteem, a cognitive aspect commonly embracing two dimensions: parental self-efficacy (PSE) and parental satisfaction (PS). Reciprocally, parents with decreased self-efficacy interact with less positive affects and behaviors (Schulz et al., 2019). Studies often focus on maternal cognitions, regardless of paternal cognitions (Murdock, 2013). However, factors predicting PSE in mothers and fathers are different, supporting the hypothesis of gender differences (Sevigny & Loutzenhiser, 2010). Gender differences in representations of parental roles could influence parents’ cognitions and behaviors with their child, but little information is available to this day (Favez et al., 2015). The first aim of this study is to determine how parental cognitions vary during a period of toddlerhood characterized by temper tantrums and how parental roles representations moderate parental cognitions. The second aim of this study is to determine how evidence-based practice such as video feedback (VF) interventions, effective to enhance sensitivity, positive behaviors, and self-efficacy in parent-child interactions (Balldin et al., 2018), could affect parental cognitions during the same period specifically regarding parents’ representations of their role and gender. Specifically, our goal is to a) evaluate PSE, SP, and parental roles representations of both mothers and fathers of toddlers (20-28 months); b) evaluate how VF intervention can affect those variables during a period of toddlerhood characterized by temper tantrums. Methodological design will be presented in this poster.
