Bayrakli, Hatice; Kaner, Sema
Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v12 n2 p936-943 Spr 2012
In this study, the effect of quantity and quality of social support and problem-focused coping style on mothers' resilience was examined by conducting a structural equation modeling. The sample of the research consisted of 257 mothers of children with intellectual disability, and 234 mothers of typically-developing children. The data were gathered through the Mother Resiliency Scale, the Coping Style Scale, and the Revised Parental Social Support Scale. Path analysis with latent variables was conducted to investigate the relationship between the constructs after testing the measurement models. Both groups of mothers confirmed the model showing that quantity and quality of the social support affected the problem-focused coping in a positive and moderate way and affects the resiliency in a low but positive direction. Also, the problem-focused coping style influenced resiliency in a high and positive way. (Contains 3 figures.)
