family stressors, resources, and function

This study was based on two models, namely, the resiliency model of family stress, adjustment, and adaptation and the model for family stressors, resources, and function. Family resources, such as family hardiness and support, have previously been shown to improve family adaptation. There is little evidence for the potential buffering effects of family resources on parental health in families of children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). A total of 126 parents, all with children suffering from DMD, were recruited for this study.

This article investigates the relationships of child- and family-related variables with family function in families with children who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Child-related variables included level of disability (indicator: Barthel Index) and age at diagnosis. Family-related variables included caregiver health status (indicator: Duke Health Profile), family income and employment, family support (indicator: Family APGAR), family hardiness (indicator: Family Hardiness Index), and family functioning (indicator: Family Assessment Device).

Most families of children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) first receive professional information about the disease at the time of their child's diagnosis.
