Lehman, Constance M.; Irvin, Larry K.
Education and Treatment of Children, v19 n3 p335-53 Aug 1996
A survey of 120 families of children with emotional or behavioral disorders found they received more needed support from formal organizations and paid professionals than from informal organizations and unpaid individuals. However, family members were reported as the most helpful for coping with daily challenges. Parents receiving more support rated themselves as more satisfied with family quality of life. (DB)
