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.
