Description

Mental and physical diagnoses impact the entirety of the family system, marking a period of significant distress and modification for patient and their primary system. This proposal examines nuances between a diagnosis, both mental and physical, and the impact on the family, specifically, the characteristic of the diagnosis as either non-normative, ambiguous, chronic, non-volitional, or internal. This study will include 50 families where an individual has a DSM5 diagnosis and which will be randomly assigned to a control group or the treatment group consisting of alternative coping skills will be in couples or family therapy. Data will be obtained pre and post-treatment from the Family Crisis Oriented Personal Evaluation Scales. An ANOVA will examine the coping skills of families affected by physical and mental illness.
