Konflikty v rodině původu, osobní pohoda a duševní zdraví v dospělosti
Conflict in the family of origin, subjective wellbeing, and mental health in adulthood
Languages of publication
The article explores the relationship between conflict in the family of origin and an individual’s wellbeing in adulthood. It examines to what extent the negative effects of a childhood spent in a conflict‑ridden family can be explained by economic deprivation in childhood, a disrupted life course, and a person’s sociodemographic situation in adulthood. Empirical analyses are conducted on data from the 7th wave of the ESS from 2014 and three indicators of personal wellbeing are used: a depression scale, self‑reported happiness, and life satisfaction. The analyses show that spending childhood in a conflict‑ridden family affects mainly the emotional side of personal wellbeing (happiness, depressive symptoms). The relationship between the cognitive side of personal wellbeing (satisfaction with life) and a high‑conflict environment in childhood can be explained by sociodemographic factors.
