Z historii badań nad rodzicami dzieci z niepełnosprawnością
A brief history of research on parents of children with disabilities
Languages of publication
The paper presents chosen scientific theories regarding the adaptation of parents of children with disabilities to critical situations. Most of the evoked theories originate from the ABCX Model, invented by Reuben Hill in 1949. One of the paper's conclusions is that there is no universal theory which fully explains process of parents' adaptation to the situation in which they have to face with disability of their child. Moreover in future research there should be a focus on variables which mediate and moderate the association between child's disability and parents' adjustment and adaptation to crisis.
