How To Develop Coping Skills.
Murphy, Linda; Della Corte, Suzanne
Special Parent/Special Child, v6 n3 May-Jun 1990
This article aims to strengthen the ability of parents of special needs children to function as stronger, more resilient parents by developing coping mechanisms. Coping mechanisms include allowing oneself to cry, dealing with anger, determining objectively the reasons for the anger, using anger constructively, finding support, becoming flexible, and taking charge of those life elements that are controllable. The article concludes with a section of "do's" and "don'ts." (JDD)
