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.
