Adaptation of Families with Mentally Retarded Children: A Model of Stress, Coping, and Family Ecology.
Crnic, Keith A.; And Others
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v88 n2 p125-38 Sep 1983
A critical review focused on parents, siblings, parent-child interactions, and family systems related to mental retardation is presented. A model is proposed that accounts for the range of possible familial adaptations and the family's coping resources and ecological environments as interactive systems that serve to mediate the family's response to stress.
