The Association of Positive and Negative Events with Depressive Symptomatology among Caregivers.
Macera, Caroline A.; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v36 n1 p75-80 1993
Studied 82 family caregivers to identify positive and negative factors associated with caregiving. Instruments included two new scales designed to measure perceived positive and negative events in previous month. For new scales, only items significantly correlated with depressive symptomatology were retained. Findings suggest scales may be useful in sorting out mediating factors related to caregiver burden.
