Cheshire, Anna, Barlow, Julie A. and Powell, Lesley A. (2010) Coping using positive reinterpretation in parents of children with cerebral palsy. Journal of Health Psychology, 15 (6). pp. 801-810. ISSN 1359-1053Full text not available from this repository.
Use of the coping strategy positive reinterpretation was examined among parents of children with cerebral palsy (CP). Survey data (n = 66) were used to gain a general picture of positive reinterpretation use, which was then explored in greater depth using semistructured interviews (n = 13). Positive reinterpretation was positively correlated with self-efficacy and negatively correlated with depression and stress. Interviews identified two types of positive reinterpretation: focusing on the positive aspects of the situation and finding meaning (in caring for a child with CP). Positive reinterpretation appeared to be an adaptive coping strategy used to deal with emotional stresses experienced by parents.
