School Reorientation of Children with Disabilities: A Stressful Life Event Challenging Parental Cognitive and Behavioral Adjustment
Roskam, Isabelle; Zech, Emmanuelle; Nils, Frederic; Nader-Grosbois, Nathalie
Journal of Counseling & Development, v86 n2 p132-142 Spr 2008
The authors propose guidelines for counselors who notify parents of children with disabilities that a school reorientation is needed. They propose a model that integrates the predictors, moderators, and mediators of parental adjustment after school reorientation notification. The article includes the risk and resource factors associated with parents' emotional, cognitive, and behavioral adjustment and examines the defense mechanisms and coping strategies that contribute to the adjustment of parental beliefs and child-rearing behavior. Counselors are provided with concrete guidelines related to these issues.
