This study tested the unique and interactive effects of sensitivity to teachers' punishment and social affiliation with teachers to callous-unemotional traits in a community sample of 695 middle school students (352 girls, 50.65 %; M age = 12.90 years, SD = 0.91 years). Over and above gender, school grade, and levels of both internalizing and externalizing problems, sensitivity to teachers' punishment and affiliation with teachers were uniquely and negatively associated to callous-unemotional traits. Moreover, a significant interaction term suggested that higher levels of sensitivity to teachers' punishment were negatively associated to callous-unemotional traits especially at low (versus high) levels of dissatisfaction with teachers. Emerged results were read in light of the recent Sensitivity to Threat and Affiliative Reward (STAR) Model.

Abstract

This study tested the unique and interactive effects of sensitivity to teachers' punishment and social affiliation with teachers to callous-unemotional traits in a community sample of 695 middle school students (352 girls, 50.65 %; M age = 12.90 years, SD = 0.91 years). Over and above gender, school grade, and levels of both internalizing and externalizing problems, sensitivity to teachers' punishment and affiliation with teachers were uniquely and negatively associated to callous-unemotional traits. Moreover, a significant interaction term suggested that higher levels of sensitivity to teachers' punishment were negatively associated to callous-unemotional traits especially at low (versus high) levels of dissatisfaction with teachers. Emerged results were read in light of the recent Sensitivity to Threat and Affiliative Reward (STAR) Model.
