Abstract

This study examined how perceptions of maternal control and support are associated with hostile-biased social information processing (SIP) among eighty-four 9- and 10-year-old aggressive boys, Subjects completed a questionnaire covering both perceived maternal control (PMC) and perceived maternal support (PMS), The SIP measures of hostile attribution of intent and hostile response selection were measured on the basis of responses to six ambiguous hypothetical stories depicting peer provocation. Results showed that PMC was associated positively with both the SIP measures, whereas PMS was associated negatively with both the SLP measures. Also, the effects of PMC on both the SIP measures were extenuated by low PMS, The findings are discussed in terms of how aggressive boys' perceptions of their relationships with their mothers, such as negative relational schemas, nuclear scripts, and insecure attachment histories, favor more hostile SIP,
