Predisposition to Various Addictions in a Modern Family 2055
The paper discusses the nature of family influence on the development of interpersonal dependency and predispositions to drug abuse and alcoholism. The aim of the study was to determine differences in interpersonal and chemical dependency in complete and incomplete families and families with different parenting styles. The following measures were used in the study: V. D. Mendelevich questionnaire on predispositions to drug abuse and alcoholism, Interpersonal Dependency Inventory by R. F. Bornstein (in O. P. Makushina's adaptation), parenting styles questionnaires by E. G. Eydemiller & V. V. Yustitskis. Results show significantly higher rates of chemical addiction in single-parent families and families with hypoprotectiveness and with indulging hyperprotectiveness, and higher rates of interpersonal dependency in families with emotional rejection and with indulging hyperprotectiveness.
