Coping Resources of Parents of Developmentally Handicapped Children Living in Rural Communities.
Minnes, Patricia; And Others
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v15 n2 p109-18 1989
The study examined the stress associated with parenting a handicapped child experienced by parents living in rural Ontario communities. Availability of social support emerged as the major predictor of reduced stress. Family characteristics (e.g. cohesion and adaptability) and child characteristics (e.g. severity of handicap) emerged less often as predictors. (Author/DB)
