Dimensions of family coping with head injury: A replication and extension

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cumulation of data is needed to advance knowledge and practice in the area of family coping with head injury. The purpose of this investigation was to identify the dimensions that underlie family coping with head injury by replicating and extending an earlier study by Kosciulek (1994). The following 2 dimensions were identified: (a) using social support versus cognitive coping and (b) head injury-focused coping versus family tension management. Results provide additional evidence regarding the structure of family coping across different groups of families and can be used to guide future head injury family intervention and research.
