The Contribution of Attachment to Burden in Adult Children of Institutionalized Parents with Dementia.
Crispi, Esther Loring; And Others
Gerontologist, v37 n1 p52-60 Feb 1997
Studied 108 adults to investigate the impact of adult attachment to parents, perceived disease severity, and caregiving behaviors, moderated by perceived caregiving adequacy. Results indicate that attachment style and the trait aspect of attachment predicted both aspects of caregiver burden. Attachment preoccupation predicted psychologic symptomatology. No other variables were significant predictors. (RJM)
