Families with Chronically Ill Young Children: The Unsinkable Family.
Martin, Sylvia S.; And Others
Remedial and Special Education (RASE), v13 n2 p6-15 Mar-Apr 1992
This study used interviews and home observations with three families to examine how chronic illness in a young child affects daily family life. The families reported frequent low vitality, selective interest in available support groups, restricted social life, and preoccupation with decisions concerning their child's illness. General strategies, both active and passive, were identified. (Author/DB)
