Sines. Copyright 1983 by Psychological Assessment and Services, Iowa City, Iowa. Reprinted by permission. depressive symptoms and the HEQ scales among boys and girls are presented in Table 2. None of the HEQ measures of family social environment is correlated with depressive symptoms among girls (pA-E is not strictly a measure of environment within the home). This marked sex difference emphasizes the need to examine correlates of depression among girls and boys separately. The only HEQ variables that are positively related to depression among boys (pA-E, pA-H, pCh) can be characterized as measures of undesirable conditions.

3. Genetic Confounding It seems likely that the ubiquitous family history of similar complaints reflects, to some significant degree, a genetic vulnerability to somatic complaints. In the absence of information about the correlations between these variables among adopted children, we cannot assume that family social environment has an independent influence on number and severity of functional pain in children. 4. Direction of Effect Behavior therapists, such as Mansdorf, make an impressive argument for the notion that parents can shape and reinforce somatic complaints, but the fact that parents can do so does not speak to the question of whether or not the child's complaints elicit the reinforcing attention from parents.

Genetic Confounding The data on genetic confounding are unequivocal. In every study of adopted children, the correlation between environmental factors and children's cognitive ability was markedly lower than that observed in nonadoptive families. Although the correlation between SES, for instance, and children's mental ability generally remained significant in adoptive families, SES accounted for only a small portion of the variance in measures of cognitive ability in adoptive families, and in many cases that might have been due to selective placement of more intelligent children into higher SES families.
