  • Assessing defense structure in school-age children using the response evaluation measure-71-youth version (REM-Y-71) CHILD PSYCHIATRY & HUMAN DEVELOPMENT Araujo, K. B., Medic, S., Yasnovsky, J., Steiner, H. 2006; 36 (4): 427-436


    This study used the Response Evaluation Measure-Youth (REM-Y-71), a self-report measure of 21 defense reactions, among school-age children. Participants were elementary and middle school students (n = 290; grades 3-8; age range: 8-15; mean = 11.73). Factor analysis revealed a 2-factor defense structure consistent with structure among high school and adult samples. The composite REM-Y defense scores for each factor were significant predictors of social desirability, using the Children's Defensiveness Scale (CDS); anxiety, using the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children (STAIC); and psychosocial functioning. This study represents the first cross-sectional empirical analysis of overall defense structure and use among children and early adolescents.
