Daire, Andrew P.; Casado-Kehoe, Montserrat; Lin, Chang-Hui
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v1 n3-4 p253-271 2005
Parents dream that their children will have every benefit possible to survive and thrive in the world. When their children have special needs, these dreams are challenged. Parents must adjust to the needs of their child and to the loss of this aspect of their dream. Common challenges and considerations when working with fathers of children with special needs are presented. "Redreaming," an intervention to facilitate positive reappraisal, and creative approaches are also presented. (Contains 3 tables.)
