Title: A multi-method approach to understand parent behaviors during child acute pain
Author: Constantin, Kaytlin; Moline, Rachel; Labonte, Lindsay; McMurtry, Meghan
Abstract: Parent behaviors strongly predict child responses to acute pain; less studied are the factors shaping parent behaviors. Heart rate variability (HRV) is considered a physiological correlate of emotional responding. Resting or “trait” HRV is indicative of the capacity for emotion regulation, while momentary changes or “state” HRV is reflective of current emotion regulatory efforts. This study aimed to examine: 1) parent state HRV as a contributor to parent verbal behaviors before and during child pain; and 2) parent trait HRV as a moderator between parent emotional states (anxiety, catastrophizing) and parent behaviors.
