Abstract

Israeli parents caring for their adult children with psychiatric disabilities (n=89) were studied with regard to their thoughts, considerations and future planning for out-of-home placement. These placement variables were examined as a function of their age, emotional stress (marital, parental and domestic), cognitive appraisal, social support and self-esteem. Major findings show that parental stress (low) was correlated with thought and consideration regarding out-of-home placement, whereas marital stress (low) was associated with future planning. A regression analysis found that parental thought and consideration regarding placement was predicted by low marital stress, whereas future planning was also predicted by high parental cognitive appraisal.
