Pakenham, Kenneth I.
Family Relations, v47 n3 p269-77 Jul 1998
The utility of "coping congruency" and "average level of couple coping" in explaining adjustment to multiple sclerosis was examined. Interview and questionnaire data was collected for 45 dyads with a 12-month follow-up. Predictors include Time 1 illness, caregiving, and coping variables. Findings support both concepts for explaining collective and individual adjustment. (Author/EMK)
