Investigating Stigma within the Stress Process.
Baxter, Christine
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v14 n3 p244-45 Sep 1991
This exploratory study assessed whether mental disability stigma can be usefully investigated by looking at parental (n=131) stress and (1) deviating characteristics of the child and (2) distressing reactions of others. Stress was found to be significantly associated with parents exhibiting either controlled affect or dissociation modes of coping. Age-related differences were also found. (DB)
