The Effect of Stressful Life Events and Transitions on Family Functioning and Well-Being.
Lavee, Yoav; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n4 p857-73 Nov 1987
Examined multivariate model of effect of life events and transitions, intrafamily strain, marital adjustment, and appraisal on family well being. Showed that life events and transitions had no effect on family well being, but they intensified intrafamily strain, which in turn negatively affected marital adjustment and perceived well being, yet promoted more optimistic appraisals of situations.
