Arnaud, Sara Hayes
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to investigate certain psychological characteristics of children who have been exposed to the type of family disruption that occurs when a parent is chronically ill and remains in the home. The specific illness focussed upon, as a representative of this class of disease, was multiple sclerosis (M S), a chronic, progressively disabling neurologic disorder that strikes the young adult population in an apparently random way.
