Social Development, v10 n4 p455-72 2001
Examined relations between representational models of mother-child relationships of mothers and children ages 14 to 52 months (some diagnosed with cerebral palsy or epilepsy) and maternal characteristics, child disability status, and maternal behavior in a problem-solving task. Found that representations are related to caregiving behavior apart from other maternal characteristics and that mothers' representations reflect variability in their children. (KB)
