  1. The role of the family in psychosocial adaptation to physical disabilities for African Americans.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Scientific assembly of the national medical association. Annual Convention. San Francisco CA USA, 1992/08/01.

    The psychosocial adjustment of patients who are experiencing physical disabilities is examined within the context of a family ecological approach.

    Historical and sociocultural characteristics of African-American families are delineated and explored in terms of their potentially positive impact on the adjustment process.

    Four family strengths are delineated : strong kinship bonds, strong religious orientation, family role flexibility, and strong education/work ethic.

    The authors demonstrate how these various assets interact reciprocally in the family lives of those individuals who are disabled.

    Contrary to the predominant deficit theories, a fresh asset-oriented approach is provided.
