For Parent child relationship:

select p.table_name PARENT_TABLE, c.table_name CHILD_TABLE
from user_constraints p, user_constraints c
where (p.constraint_type = 'P' OR p.constraint_type = 'U')
and c.constraint_type = 'R'
and p.constraint_name = c.r_constraint_name
/

For dependant objects like procedure,functions,views:

SQL> @ utldtree -- find in yr database folder.
SQL> Execute deptree_fill('TABLE','SCOTT','EMP');

Here a message should display that the procedure successfully completed.

then you can query as

SQL> select * from deptree;
SQL> select * from ideptree;

Hope this help
