Kids' Callousness Associated With Conduct Problems
Date:2/21/2011

MONDAY, Feb. 21 (HealthDay News) -- Children who display a lack of emotion and a lack of empathy or guilt -- features that psychologists call "callous-unemotional traits" -- are at risk of antisocial behavior and other adjustment problems, research shows.

An analysis of data from more than 9,000 twins born in England and Wales between 1994 and 1996 found that high levels of both callous-unemotional traits and conduct problems were associated with negative child and family factors at age 4, including negative parental discipline and chaos in the home.

In most cases, the emergence of callous-unemotional traits in childhood appears to be influenced by genetic factors, especially in boys.

However, environmental factors seem to be more significant for the small number of girls who have high levels of these traits, according to the researchers.

"The children with high levels of both callous-unemotional traits and conduct problems between ages 7 to 12 were likely to present negative predictors and outcomes, including hyperactivity problems and living in a chaotic home environment," researcher Nathalie M.G. Fontaine, an assistant professor of criminal justice at Indiana University, said in a university news release.

She stressed, however, that callousness and lack of emotion in children did not mean that the youngsters were likely to become psychop
