Abstract

Objective: To determine whether physiological severity of asthma is associated with increased psychological symptoms in children. Method: Participants were 337 children, aged 7 to 19 years (mean 11.9, SE 0.13), and a parent of each child. Children's asthma severity was rated by experienced pediatric asthma specialists using current guidelines fromthe National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Children filled out the Children's Manifest Anxiety Scale and the Weinberger Adjustment Inventory. Parents reported on their child's medical history, completed the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) about their child, and completed thePennebaker Inventory of Linguid Languidness as a measure of their ownphysical symptoms. Results: Child-rated anxiety symptoms were unrelated to asthma severity or to markers of asthma functional morbidity. Parental ratings of internalizing symptoms in their children were related to severity. Parent physical symptoms explained 10.2 % of the variance in CBCL Internalizing symptoms, and asthma severity added an additional 6.7 % to the variance. Conclusions: Asthma severity may be a moresalient stressor to parents, who in turn report higher levels of child internalizing symptoms for children with severe asthma, than to children themselves. Contrary to prior hypotheses, children with severe asthma did not rate themselves as having higher levels of anxiety than those with mild or moderate asthma or than standardized norms.
