HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS' DELAY IN CHILD REARING AND THE PSYCHOLOGICAL HEALTH OF THEIR CHILDREN
The delay in child rearing on the part of Holocaust survivors and its impact on the psychological health of their children was examined using meta-regression techniques. A negative relationship was found between anxiety and depression and delay in child rearing. Specifically, a longer time lapse appears to relate to lower levels of depression and anxiety. Findings relating to paranoia were contrary to this pattern, but, this may have been a result of insufficient data. The positive effects of resolution of mourning as well as removal from immigration experiences are proposed as possible explanations.
