Perceived caregiving demands, family resiliency factors, and quality of life outcomes for family caregivers of traumatic brain injury victims during acute hospitalizationLarew, Charles Foster; Picot, Sandra J. (2006)This study was designed to examine predictors of quality of life (QOL) outcomes in family caregivers of traumatic brain injury (TBI) victims and empirically test the Resiliency Model of Family Stress, Adjustment, and Adaptation. A cross-sectional design was utilized. Family members (N=52) completed a worksheet measuring anticipated TBI victim care needs and anticipated caregiver roles. Caregiver demands were measured by the Family Inventory of Life Events (FILE). Resiliency factor indicators included the Family Hardiness Index (FHI), Family Crisis Oriented Personal Evaluation Scale (FCOPES), Family Inventory of Resources for Management (FIRM), Family Problem Solving Communications Index (FPSC). Caregiver QOL was measured with the Family Member Well Being Index (FMWB) and the Ladder of Life (LOL) Current Life Satisfaction tool. Data analysis using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences included descriptive statistics, relationships among variables, and regression analyses. The majority of caregivers were female (65.4%), parents or spouses (59.6%), with at least an associate degree (51.9%), and co-resided with the TBI victim (57.7%). FILE was related to FHI (r = -.286, p<.05) and FIRM (r = -.508, p<.001). FILE was related to FMWB (r = -.346, p<.05). FHI was related to FCOPES (r = .462, p<.01), FIRM (r = .754, p<.001), and FPSC (r = .565, p<.001). FCOPES was related to FIRM (r = .385, p<.01) and FPSC (r = .422, p<.01). FHI was related to current life satisfaction (r = .277, p<.05). FIRM was related to both FMWB (r = .279, p<.05) and current life satisfaction (r = .375, p<.01). Caregiver well being was best predicted by FILE and LOS [Adjusted R2 .16,F(2,49) = 5.83, p<.01]. Current life satisfaction was best predicted by caregiver educational level, spousal relationship, and FIRM [Adjusted R2 .31, F(3,47) = 8.46, p<.001]. Decreased family demands and shorter hospitalizations were predictive of higher family caregiver well being. Lower educational levels, non-spousal relationships, and increased resources were predictive of higher caregiver current life satisfaction. This study validated the hypothesized relationships of the resiliency model and provided support for future use of this theoretical framework for health care providers working with family caregivers of TBI victims.
Resilience in young adults: An assessment of individual, family and community level protective factorsHisle-Gorman, Elizabeth; Harrington, Donna (2008)Problem statement. Childhood poverty and child maltreatment are problems that affect millions of children, and often result in a range of negative sequelae. Yet, some individuals do well despite hardship. Understanding resilient survivors of child maltreatment and factors that contribute to their resilience is needed to best serve others who have been abused and neglected. Methods. Young adults (age 18-35) enrolled in college and in a Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) welfare to work job training program were surveyed on demographic, risk and protective factors, and indicators of resilience. Resilience was measured using a composite score composed of seven indicators of resilience (college and employment participation, scholastic achievement, self esteem, postponing childbearing, avoiding early drug and alcohol use, avoiding post traumatic stress disorder, and avoiding depression). Results. An internal locus of control, the presence of a familial mentor, religious involvement and a positive high school experience were all significant protective factors that contributed to resilience against child maltreatment and childhood poverty. As expected, recruitment site also significantly predicted resilience. Conclusion. An internal locus of control, the presence of a familial mentor, religious involvement and a positive high school experience are all associated with global resilience in young adults.
