Viewing lives through the long lens

Separating fallacies, fads and facts, Distinguished Professor Alan Hayes' family-centric research is serving to provide an evidence base for devising policy and practice in Australia.

Alan Hayes 

Professor Alan Hayes AM puts family first. It's at the heart of his illustrious professional life, with the role of vulnerability and resilience in the developmental pathways of children a longstanding focus. The factors that facilitate access to opportunity are similarly key to his studies.

"Families are so fundamental," he concedes.

"We all have one."

"If you consider the impact – for good and for ill – that families can have in the light of increasing complexities and challenges they face, we need new ways to increase the extent to which they are positive, sustaining influences for individuals and communities."

Completing initial training in primary school teaching, Alan began his research career with an Honours Degree in psychology, graduating in 1975. Exploring imitation in young children he then moved on to a PhD on the interactions between mothers and babies.

"Like many doctoral projects it was a fascinating and a tad ambitious undertaking," he muses.

"I essentially looked at who leads and who follows."

"This then got me thinking about the ways in which child development is contextualised."

"Relationships within the family are vital, as are the supports that are externally available."

Something special

Alan worked at the University of Queensland's Schonell Special Education Research Centre during and after his candidature, collaborating with senior scholars on a number of ground-breaking research projects. Labelling the 17-years there as a "terrific learning experience," he says "it greatly advanced" his understanding of the social impacts of conditions involving cognitive motor or metabolic dimensions.

"We looked at links between child development and several conditions, such as Down syndrome, spina bifida and galactosaemia," he recalls.

In particular, the longitudinal study on children with Down syndrome and their family relationships was a major initiative that resulted in a research program which his colleagues continue.

Lead and succeed

Moving south in 1995, Alan became a professor and Head of School at Macquarie University. Asked by the Vice Chancellor to take up the inaugural Dean of Faculty position one year later, he managed to balance both research and academic leadership responsibilities.

"At that time I did a lot of work around how one builds community capacity to support families," he shares, "and that work continues."

"It's been a common thread throughout my research career."

Adding to his long list of achievements, Alan was asked by the then Commonwealth Government to head up the Australian Council for Children and Families. Towards the end of the 1990s, he also became the Deputy Chair of the Stronger Families Partnership.

"This was an expansion of the flagship Australian Government strategy," he explains.

"It sought to enhance the development of young children by strengthening their communities."

Renewed focus

Moving onwards and upwards, Alan became the Director of the Australian Institute of Family Studies in 2004.

"I feel privileged and honoured to have led this wonderful organisation for the past 11 years."

"I had a hand in building its extensive capacity to undertake longitudinal research, which is equally pleasing."

Alan teamed up with the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Department partners in Canberra to undertake one of Australia's flagship studies, investigating the contribution of children's social, economic and cultural environments to their adjustment and wellbeing. Closely following the development of 5,000 infants and 5,000 4-5-year-olds and their families through the ongoing study, the enthusiastic researcher looks to identify policy opportunities and improve community supports for participants.

"Growing Up in Australia is now a major testbed for a lot of thinking around government policy priorities and programs," he acknowledges.

"It's being used very widely – not just by Australian researchers but by those around the world."

Continuing the Institute's involvement in another longitudinal study, Alan also sought to build on the ground-breaking work of his predecessors. Again focusing primarily on biological data, the 'Australian Temperament Project' monitors the lives and interactions of a large group of Victorian children and their parents.

"This research commenced in 1983, so they're now following the infants of the original infants," Alan attests. 

"It's one of only a few studies with information on three generations of family members."

A newbie Novocastrian

In July 2015 Alan made the switch to the University of Newcastle, taking up a directorial position at the Family Action Centre. Believing there's a widespread "lack of understanding" when it comes to engaging and supporting families who are "doing it tough," in this new position, Alan is seeking to forge strong links with colleagues in Allied and Public Health, as well as those in the social sciences.

He observes that "outcomes for people depend heavily on the strength of families and community connections" and a range of disciplines have much to contribute to their health and wellbeing.

"That said, however, it is now time to develop family studies as a discipline in its own right."

"It's very exciting to be here," he states.

"There's lots to be done!"

Alan is also looking forward to "getting back to the research coalface." He is already "rolling up his sleeves" and has joined a research consortium with collaborators at Griffith University who are looking to synergise the efforts of diverse community players, and create a more sustainable basis for supporting families. They are currently working to extend the program with support from an ARC Linkage Grant to communities that are part of the Australian Government's 'Communities for Children' program.

"It's hoped we'll be successful in the next round of grant offerings so we can build the study to make it a truly national contribution," he adds.

Meaningful and purposeful

Though he's only been in Newcastle a short while, Alan is full of praise when it comes to talking about his experiences of the city and its people. He is similarly impressed by the University, affirming its "tremendous energy and dynamism" and impressive potential for growth.

"The Hunter has a great diversity of both positive characteristics and challenges – it's reinvented itself after facing significant economic and industry changes, but, like many communities, there are still some pockets where people have missed out and been left behind," the social scientist reflects.

"From its inception, looking to make a difference, the Family Action Centre has focused on these pockets."

"I am privileged to be able to contribute as the Centre's Director and the University's inaugural Distinguished Professor of Family Studies."

Career Summary

Biography

Professor Hayes was appointed as a Member of the Order of Australia in 2012 for service to the social sciences through the Australian Institute of Family Studies, as a contributor to policy research, and as an academic and author.
He has a distinguished national and international academic research and publishing record in the life pathways of children and the role of families in sustaining development, fostering resilience and reducing vulnerabilities across life. He has had a particular focus on prevention and early intervention and effective policies to support families through the life-course.

With qualifications in Psychology, he has research and policy interests in the pathways children and their families take through life, and the role of families in supporting and sustaining development across life. The role of vulnerability and resilience in shaping developmental pathways has been a particular focus. Much of his work has focused on disadvantage, with a longstanding interest in prevention and early intervention. The impact of relationship breakdown on children is a particular interest, and the factors that facilitate access to opportunity continue to be a key focus. Policy interests are in the pathways children and their families take through life, and the role of families in supporting and sustaining development across life. The role of vulnerability and resilience in shaping developmental pathways has been a particular focus. Research work has mainly focused on disadvantage, with a longstanding interest in prevention and early intervention. The impact of relationship breakdown on children is a particular interest, and the factors that impede access to opportunity continue to be a key focus.

Currently, he is a member of the Australian Government’s Civil Justice System Evidence Base Working Group, the Longitudinal Studies Advisory Group (LSAG), the Turning Point Strategic Directions Advisory Committee, the Child Aware Approaches National Initiative Steering Group, the Southern Cross University Centre for Children and Young People Advisory Board; as well as the Chief Justice’s Family Law Forum, the National Advisory Board of the Family Law Section, Law Council of Australia, and an inaugural member of the APS200 Leadership Forum. He is also Chair of the Children and Families Research Centre (CFRC) Advisory Board for the Institute of Early Childhood at Macquarie University.

He has been the chair, deputy chair or a member of four Australian Government Ministerial Advisory Councils, including the Commonwealth Child Care Advisory Council (CCCAC) (Member); the Australian Council for Children and Parenting (ACCAP) (Chair); the former Stronger Families and Communities Strategy (SFCS) Partnership - now the Family Support Program (FSP) (Deputy Chair); and the Australian Families and Children Council (AFCC) (Member). For the NSW Government, he chaired the committee that successfully established the Institute of Teachers in 2004 and was a member for several years of the NSW Child Protection Council.

An Alexander von Humboldt Fellow, he has been a Visiting Professor at the Free University of Berlin and the Pennsylvania State University.

Since 2007, he has been an Ambassador for National Families Week.

Professor Hayes was appointed as a Member of the Order of Australia in 2012 for service to the social sciences through the Australian Institute of Family Studies, as a contributor to policy research, and as an academic and author.

© 2007 by The Haworth Press, Inc. All rights reserved.This article traces some of the key historical events that have combined with Australia's geography, climate and patterns of immigration in shaping characteristics of Australian families-characteristics that are remarkable for their diversity on many fronts. These factors, along with changing patterns of family formation, stability and structure, evolving parenting roles, and the ever-increasing spatial concentration of families, have all contributed to diverse strengths, vulnerabilities and lifestyles o f families. Policies directed towards helping families identify and draw on their own strengths and those of their community have gained momentum since the late 1990s. The article outlines some of these policies, along with a project on family strengths that has helped shape interventions.

© 2007 Editors and contributors.This chapter critically considers some key assumptions underpinning prevention and early intervention. It focuses particularly on the distinction between preventive interventions early in life as opposed to early in the pathway. Key definitional issues are considered, with emphasis placed on the value of a framework that includes universal, selected and indicated prevention. It is argued that early intervention is a class of indicated prevention. To illustrate the distinction between indicated prevention and selective prevention, two landmark studies are considered. The first, the Iowa Orphanage Study of Skeels, illustrates indicated prevention. The second, the High/Scope Perry Preschool Project, illustrates selective prevention. The discussion then turns to consideration of two key questions. The first concerns timing: Which problems require action when, over what timeframe, where and with whom? The second is the sustainability question: How are gains maintained? In exploring the timing question the focus is on the developmental ordering of problems and the precursors of problems that are evident in measures of temperament and personality, across infancy, early childhood, childhood and adolescence. Recent evidence from the field of adolescent development is introduced focusing particularly on the relationship between neurological change and the emergence of risk-taking behaviours. To address the sustainability question, life-span developmental concepts and longitudinal approaches underpin the argument. Families, childcare provisions, preschools, schools, peer groups, vocational, further and higher education, community organisations, and the world of work, are seen as key sustaining social systems vital both as the loci for prevention and intervention as well as for maintaining their benefits. The chapter concludes that a life-course, comprehensive approach focused on these key sustaining systems, and supported by integrated policy and practice, is needed to address the key issues of timing and sustainability, as well as the reasons why early in life is not enough.

© 2017 Elsevier Ltd.Neuroscientific explanations of gambling disorder can help people make sense of their experiences and guide the development of psychosocial interventions. However, the societal perceptions and implications of these explanations are not always clear or helpful. Two workshops in 2013 and 2014 brought together multidisciplinary researchers aiming to improve the clinical and policy-related effects of neuroscience research on gambling. The workshops revealed that neuroscience can be used to improve identification of the dangers of products used in gambling. Additionally, there was optimism associated with the diagnostic and prognostic uses of neuroscience in problem gambling and the provision of novel tools (eg, virtual reality) to assess the effectiveness of new policy interventions before their implementation. Other messages from these workshops were that neuroscientific models of decision making could provide a strong rationale for precommitment strategies and that interdisciplinary collaborations are needed to reduce the harms of gambling.

© 2014, Australian Institute of Family Studies. All rights reserved.This article examines some of the fallacies and fads regarding social science 'evidence' that can get in the way of the facts. As such, it has bearing on the broader question of how social science 'evidence' is to be used in family law matters. It looks at: the historically contextualised and ever-changing nature of knowledge; some myths of uniformity and common misinterpretations of developmental science; and the primacy of discernment and judgement when assessing the facts of the matter, including the weight to be placed on social science evidence. This article was originally published in the recent book 'Families, policy and the law: Selected essays on contemporary issues for Australia', published by the Australian Institute of Family Studies in 2014.

As in other Western countries, Australian society has changed considerably over the past 50 years, creating demands for shifts in family-related policies, practices and legislation. The social sciences have played an important role in this process by monitoring changes, informing the development of appropriate responses and assessing the effectiveness of such responses. In this article, we briefl y explore four key social changes that have had a profound impact on Australian families - women's increasing participation in the workforce; changing perceptions of fatherhood; greater recognition of the existence and destructive consequences of family violence and child abuse; and the increased emphasis on the rights of the child. We suggest that the first two of these changes contributed significantly to the introduction of the Australian Family Law Act 1975 (Cth), and that the other two changes have had a continuing significant infl uence on legislators' attempts to articulate and implement acceptable decision-making principles with regard to post-separation parenting. Next we consider the most recent major amendments to Australian family law, the 2006 'shared parental responsibility' legislation, and its subsequent evaluation by the Australian Institute of Family Studies. We show how this evaluation has provided a basis for examining both the extent to which the policy and practice intentions of these reforms were being achieved, and the extent to which further changes were required. We conclude by noting how the evaluation, along with other research, has contributed to further important changes to family law service provision and further significant legislative amendments. © eContent Management Pty Ltd.

Overall, a higher percentage of respondents in LSAC than HILDA referred to the experience of one or more life events in the previous 12 months (70% vs 50%). This trend may be partly explained by the fact that the experience of many of the events listed in each survey would be age-related (an issue examined below) and more generally feasible for LSAC than HILDA sample members given their common stage in family life. There are also differences in the life events listed. In addition, the LSAC results refer to experiences of two people if the respondent has a partner, whereas those pertaining to HILDA focus on the experiences of the respondent alone. Despite these differences, some consistency in the findings from the two studies emerge. In each study, the life events that were relatively common included having an illness or injury occur to a close relative, having a close friend or other relative die, suffering a serious personal injury or illness, and changing residence. In the next section, we outline some of the ways in which the experience of life events varied according to a selection of personal and family characteristics, including age and financial circumstances.

Background: There have been few evaluations of national area-based interventions. This study evaluated the early effects of Commmunities for Children (CfC) on children and their families and whether the effectiveness differed for more disadvantaged families. Methods: A quasi-experimental cohort study in socioeconomically disadvantaged communities in Australia. Mothers of children aged 2-3 years participated at wave 1; 1488 children in CfC communities and 714 children in comparison communities. Outcome measures included child health and development, family functioning and parenting, and services and community. Results: After controlling for background factors, there were beneficial effects associated with CfC. At wave 3, in CfC areas children had higher receptive vocabulary (mean difference (MD) 0.25, 95% CI -0.02 to 0.51; p=0.07), parents showed less harsh parenting (MD -0.14, 95% CI -0.30 to 0.02; p=0.08) and higher parenting self-efficacy (MD 0.11, 95% CI 0.00 to 0.21; p=0.04). Fewer children living in CfC sites were living in a jobless household (OR 0.56, 95% CI 0.32 to 0.95; p=0.03) but children's physical functioning (MD-0.26, 95% CI-0.53 to 0.00; p=0.05) was worse in CfC sites. For children living in households with mothers with low education there were reduced child injuries requiring medical treatment (MD-0.61, 95% CI-0.07 to-1.13; p=0.03) and increased receptive vocabulary (MD 0.57, 95% CI 0.06 to 1.08; p=0.03). Conclusions: CfC showed some benefits for child receptive vocabulary, parenting and reducing jobless households and two adverse effects. Children living in the most disadvantaged households also benefited.

Maternal behaviors and child mastery behaviors were examined in 25 children with Down syndrome and 43 typically developing children matched for mental age (24-36 months). During a shared problem-solving task, there were no group differences in maternal directiveness or support for autonomy, and mothers in the two groups used similar verbal strategies when helping their child. There were also no group differences in child mastery behaviors, measured as persistence with two optimally challenging tasks. However, the two groups differed in the relationships of maternal style with child persistence. Children with Down syndrome whose mothers were more supportive of their autonomy in the shared task displayed greater persistence when working independently on a challenging puzzle, while children of highly directive mothers displayed lower levels of persistence. For typically developing children, persistence was unrelated to maternal style, suggesting that mother behaviors may have different causes or consequences in the two groups. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.

The transition from home to school is a major change in children's lives. Children vary in their "readiness" for this transition, and the marked differences visible in children's cognitive and social/emotional skills at school entry have implications for later outcomes. In this paper, Ben Edwards, Jennifer Baxter, Diana Smart, Ann Sanson and Alan Hayes examine the impact of living in financial disadvantage on children's school readiness and the role that other risk and protective factors play.

Matthew Gray, Ben Edwards, Alan Hayes and Jennifer Baxter provide a broad-ranging review of the potential impacts on Australian families of the global recession. The paper begins with information on the rates of unemployment and long-term unemployment since 1980 to the present day. The authors point out that several demographic changes mean that this economic downturn will be different for families than in previous years. Women are now engaged in the labour force at much higher rates than previously and, as a consequence, there are more dualincome families. Single-parent families may be particularly vulnerable in difficult economic times, given their reliance on a single income. Surprisingly, there is little direct evidence of the effect of unemployment in economic downturns on families, but there is fairly good international evidence on the impact of unemployment on families more generally. Gray et al. summarise evidence on the scarring effect of unemployment, and the impact of unemployment on mental and physical health, crime, family functioning and children. Also discussed is the impact of economic downturns on broader contextual factors, such as the geographic concentration of unemployment and disadvantage, housing, and social exclusion. There have been some substantial falls in asset values, particularly in the stock market, and this has flowed through to superannuation balances and the authors suggest that this may have an impact on families, as older workers may delay their retirement.

© 2008 Australian Institute of Family Studies.In many developed economies there is currently a focus on how the lives of the most disadvantaged in society can be improved and the role that governments can play in this. A number of European countries have embraced a social policy approach that places a priority on those who are excluded from the opportunities that promote wellbeing. This article provides a brief overview of social inclusion and related literatures and some of the issues surrounding the concept. It concludes that while social inclusion has been adopted as an organising principle for social policy in a number of countries, the experience of these countries is mixed and the extent to which the social inclusion agenda has been successful is contested. It concludes that it is important that Australia learns from the international experiences to take what worked and avoid some of the pitfalls. An overview of the other articles in the edition is also provided.

The Australian Temperament Project (ATP) provides a unique lens through which to view the pathways to, vulnerability and resilience that Australian children take from infancy to adolescence, and beyond. Commencing in 1983, the ATP is now completing its 24th year and 14th wave of data collection. The present paper provides an overview of the data on adolescent antisocial behaviour, substance use, internalising problems and aspects of positive development and wellbeing. Several pathways to vulnerability or resilience are described that vary in their age of onset. Constellations of common risk factors suggest that there may be overlapping priming factors for later mental health problems. A different mix of factors relates to pathways to wellbeing. This unique Australian study provides invaluable insights into stability and change in the pathways to mental health that children take across life. © Freund Publishing House Ltd.

The performance of 25 children with Down syndrome on delay of gratification tasks was compared with that of a mental age-matched group of typically developing children. Delay tasks included both other- and self-imposed tasks. Children with Down syndrome were significantly less able to delay gratification than the comparison group on two of the three tasks. Receptive language was associated with delay on the self-imposed task for the typically developing group but not for children with Down syndrome. It is hypothesised that there may be a lag in the development of self-regulation that is greater than the lag between chronological and mental age for children with Down syndrome, with expressive language playing a role in this lag. The practice of using mental age as the method for matching groups of children with Down syndrome with typically developing children is called into question by the results of this study.

To describe the physical growth patterns of infants born to narcotic dependent mothers (INDM) over a 12 months period and, if possible, to relate the growth to drug taking patterns during pregnancy. Methodology: The growth of a cohort of 43 INDM was measured during the first 12 months of life. Weight and length measurements were compared with percentile charts and converted to Z scores. Questionnaire data about drug taking practices, demographic variables and the neonatal period (including withdrawal scores) were obtained. Results: Twenty-four (55.8%) of INDM had evidence of neonatal drug withdrawal requiring treatment with phenobarbitone. At birth, Z scores for weight and length indicated relative intrauterine growth retardation. By 12 months, there had been some catch up growth, but Z scores for weight and length were still below zero. Persistent weight retardation at 12 months was correlated with methadone dosage during pregnancy, but not the need for phenobarbitone therapy. Conclusions: The growth patterns of INDM in the first 12 months of life indicated that at birth there was evidence of intrauterine growth retardation, but by 12 months the growth was little different from the rest of the community. There appears to be some influence of narcotic agents taken while pregnant on subsequent growth of INDM.

The case is presented of a 17-year-old boy with a recent diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome. Despite displaying a characteristic pattern of deficits in cognitive, social and behavioural functioning, isolated cognitive skills and a remarkable ability for calendar calculation, this boy was not diagnosed during childhood. Coexisting skills and impairments were explored through a description of developmental history and current functioning. The article considers the reasons for the disorder not being identified during childhood and discusses the case-study findings in relation to current issues about the prevalence of Asperger's syndrome, the difficulties of diagnosis and essential diagnostic criteria.

THE ROSTOCK Longitudinal Study commenced in 1970 and has prospectively monitored the development of children identified in the perinatal period as ¿at risk¿. The aims of the study are to identify some of the factors contributing to inter-individual differences in their development and to evaluate the prognostic significance of these factors. The results reported in the present paper underscore the limited prognostic value of single risk factors, the diminishing impact of organic perinatal risk factors over time, and the increasing importance of the psychosocial context in influencing developmental outcomes in childhood and adolescence. © 1991, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

An explanation for the handwriting difficulties experienced by children with spina bifida myelomeningocele was sought within the framework of a closed-loop theory of motor skill acquisition. The handwriting performance of 34 children (16 boys and 18 girls) aged 6.16 to 13.42 years was detailed with available norms. Regression analyses were then performed for the five handwriting components of speed, alignment, letter formation, spacing, and size. The regressions for speed, alignment, and letter formation reached statistical significance. For speed, age provided the greatest explanation of performance (R2 = .62, p = .008). Alignment was explained substantially by age, handedness, scholastic aptitude, and kinesthesia (R2 = .55, p = .03). Letter formation was determined primarily by age and kinesthesia (R2 = .71, p = .001,). The overall regression was not significant for spacing (R2 = .39, p = .30), or size (R2 = .35, p = .43), although a significant single degree of freedom was detected for the effect of age. These findings are discussed in terms of skill acquisition theory.

Videotaped segments involving seven prominent Australian politicans were shown to students in one of three different conditions: video only, audio only, or combined audio and video. A further group of students read transcripts. The six segments for each politician represented three situations (speech, press-conference and interview). Subjects rated their impressions of the politicians as speakers. Factor analysis indicated two dimensions of ¿dynamism¿ and ¿favourability¿; the adjective ¿politically able¿ was analysed separately. Both politician and situation influenced ratings of dynamism, while, for both favourability and political ability, effects were related mainly to politician. Subjects working from the transcript rated politicians differently from those rating from tapes. Voting preference affected ratings of favourability and political ability, but not ratings of dynamism. The results point to effects for both the politicians' reputation and for context and non-verbal behaviour. 1988 Australian Psychological Society

Gifted underachievers are children who display a discrepancy between expected high achievement and actual¿ performance. Focussing on gifted children with a long-standing pattern of underachievement not explicable in terms of learning disability, this paper adopts a developmental perspective to the problem of gifted underachievement. Literature is reviewed on the affective development of gifted underachievers and the environmental factors which may foster or diminish success in school. It is argued that cognitive and affective variables do not operate independently and should not be considered in isolation from the environmental context of development. Further, gifted underachievers are not a homogeneous group, and some influences on achievement are situation-specific and highly variable. Finally, implications for intervention are discussed in light of the need to view children¿s development not as a dichotomy of cognitive and affective change but holistically, as a complex interaction of child and environment. ©1987, University of Queensland Press, St. Lucia, Queensland, All rights reserved. © 1988, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

An infant with a deficiency of the enzyme uridine diphosphate galactose-4-epimerase was detected during galactosaemia screening of the Queensland newborn population. No case of epimerase deficiency has been reported previously in Australia and the incidence in our population is unknown. A deficiency of this enzyme is usually quite benign although two cases with galactosaemia-like syndrome have been reported. This infant is developing normally, both intellectually and physically, in spite of extremely high levels of red blood cell galactose-1-phosphate. The introduction of newer methods of galactosaemia screening in Australia will probably result in the detection of other cases of this enzyme deficiency.

Comparatively little research has focussed on the experiences of disabled children in rural communities where mainstreaming may be a matter of necessity, thus providing examples of ¿natural experiments¿ in mainstreaming. A pilot study is described in which case studies are presented of five children with disabilities who attended regular schools in isolated rural communities in Queensland; a number of factors are suggested which may be associated with the outcomes of mainstreaming for these children. Several key issues in rural mainstreaming are offered as bases for hypotheses to be examined in future research programs. © 1986, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.

The difficulties are associated with procedures involving: (i) The pooling of data, (ii) The unit of analysis, and (iii) The selection of appropriate 'expected' values for dyadic parameters used in tests of statistical inference. To illustrate these difficulties, the use of the odds ratio statistic as a means of determining such dependence is examined and alternative approaches are suggested. © 1984, Sage Publications.

Children from preschools in Australia (AUST) were compared with indigenous children from preschools at Hanuabada and Kaugere in Papua New Guinea (PNG). The effects of modelling and instruction, separately and together, on their performance in problem-solving tasks were evaluated. In addition, a within-culture comparison was made of the two PNG groups. ANCOVAS were computed with the factors group (PNG-AUST and Hanuabada-Kaugere), treatment condition (no modelling with no instruction, instruction alone, modelling alone, and instruction with modelling) and sex. Mental and chronological ages were included as covariates. The results showed that (a) the strategy adoptions were more frequent in the instruction with modelling and in the instruction alone conditions than in the control condition and the modelling alone condition was not different from the control condition, (b) PNG children in the three experimental conditions adopted the advocated strategy about three times as often as the Australian children, (c) no differences occurred between girls and boys in strategy adoptions but girls were quicker in completing the tasks than boys, and (d) chronological age was a predictor of group effects. These results were discussed in terms of a possible cognitive developmental mechanism in the performance of modelled behaviours. © 1975 International Union of Psychological Science
