Brief Summary in Lay Language

Children of adolescent mothers present a high-risk group for child neglect and maltreatment, especially if other stressors are present. Parenting programmes have shown to improve a range of behaviours of the teenage mothers, with enhancement of maternal sensitivity being most significant. Within a RCT design, a parental programme based on STEEP (Steps Towards Enjoyable and Effective Parenting) plus psychiatric treatment of the mother in case of mental illness will be compared to TAU (Treatment as Usual, in this case: standardized support by the child welfare office) in adolescent, high-risk mothers.
As sensitivity-focused treatments proved to be more effective than other strategies, maternal sensitivity was chosen as one of the primary outcome variables. Another primary outcome ist the Wellbeing/ child responsiveness. Secondary outcome parameters include child development and maternal affect regulation and abuse potential. Moderators of treatment outcome (e.g. genotype, child temperament of the child, neural and hormonal mechanism associated with parental bonding in the mother) as well as treatment effects in the child (cognitive and somatic development, structural brain maturation) will be systematically explored. A six-month-follow up should answer the question, wheather the interaction-focused intervention program strongly improves the wellbeing of the child, maternal sensitivity and affect regulation and thus reduces the risk for child neglect and maltreatment.
A third group of adult mothers will be explored with parallel variables and will be compared with the adolescent mothers.
