Intentions : « A family ecology model for understanding adolescents’ reactions to parental illness is presented and used to (a) critically evaluate existing research that examines direct effects of parental illness on family functionning and youth well-being and (b) provide a blueprint for future research in the area. » (p. 404)
Type de traitement des données : Revue de la littérature
« Theoretical, clinical, and empirical literature is reviewed for each mediational and moderational pathway in the model, and limitations of the existing research are discussed. The blueprint for future research emphasizes a greater understanding of the mediational pathways in the model, which is essential for developing effective interventions for families experiencing parental illness. In addition, greater elucidation of moderator variables, such as the youth’s developpement stage, social support, and cultural norms will provide critical information on contextual factors that enhance or impede adolescents’ adaptation to serious parental illness. » (p. 404)
