Caregiver Burden and Personal Authority: Differentiation and Connection in Caring for an Elderly Parent.
Rabin, Claire; And Others
American Journal of Family Therapy, v21 n1 p27-39 Spr 1993
Personal authority in family system (PAFS), intergenerational construct linking personal development and family interaction, was hypothesized to predict stress/strain of adult children caring for elderly disabled parents. Caregivers (n=70) completed measures of PAFS and of caregiver burden. Caregiving burden was significantly correlated to intergenerational intimacy. Intergenerational individuation and intimidation accounted for 21% of variance in caregiver burden. (Author/NB)
