3. Résumé


«The PRIFAM programme is notable for the attention provided to the well-being of each family member. It incorporates both individual and family dynamics. The awareness, skills and resources mobilized in the course of the programme enable the family to make the best use of its internal potentials and to draw from extraneous sources of aid and advice in adjusting to caring for a child with a disability. The key element of this transformation is the mutual recognition of relevant skills and authority by families and health care professionals. The reciprocity that is essential to the partnership engenders awareness and learning. This, in turn, leads to new competencies, self-determination and an individuality that may change their lives.» (p. 130)
