Why do people do the things they do?

The supportive role of fathers for children’s development of the authentic self - A view through PSI-lense.

This chapter will address a critical component for the development of the authentic self, that is, emotion regulation with reference specifically to the supportive role of fathers. Personality Systems Interactions (PSI) theory opens a window for more detailed answers addressing children's needs for individual support by fathers during childhood. In my adult-study, I retrospectively assessed quantity and quality of mother-child and father-child relationships and two different sources of childhood stress: fear of emotional loss and fear of material loss. In addition, I assessed the adult’s ability to self-regulate emotions (i.e., action versus state orientation) and several indicators of self-development and self-growth derived from PSI theory. In my analyses on the relationships between childhood stress and self-development, I focused on the role of supportive father-child interactions. Findings show that the experience of stress itself is not as relevant for the development of the authentic self as the way childhood stress is compensated through adequate emotion regulation and individual support by care givers (here: fathers) during stressful times. The application of PSI theory sheds more light on the supportive role of fathers in self-development and resilience building.
