Positive parent/adult child relationships: impact of severe mental illness and caregiving burden.

Author information

  • 1Department of Psychiatry, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA.


Comparison of 222 parents of an adult child who had a psychiatric disability and 434 parents with a nondisabled adult child revealed that parents' positive appraisals of their relationship with the target child was significantly predicted by their perceived caregiving burden, but not by their child's psychiatric status. Implications for interventions that enhance parent/adult child relationships are discussed.
