Pot, A. M.; Deeg, D. J. H.; van Dyck, R.; Jonker, C.
Patient Education and Counseling, v34 n1 p43-51 May 1998
Examines whether the role of caregiving appraisal explains why stressors in the caregiving situation affect caregivers' psychological distress. Results show that for spouse caregivers, perceived pressure explains the association between their caregiving tasks and psychological distress. Results also show clear mediator effects of perceived pressure for associations between stressors. (Author/MKA)
