Coping styles, psychological functioning and quality of life in children with asthma

Marsac, M. L., Funk, J. B. & Nelson, L.

Previous research states that children with asthma are at a higher risk of developing psychological maladjustment than those without, and that coping is a factor in psychological adaptation to chronic stresses such as physical illness. The objective of this study was to examine the relationships between coping, psychological functioning and quality of life in children diagnosed with asthma and to investigate the relationship that mothers' quality of life has with these.
