Stress and Coping of Children with Sickle Cell Disease
Abstract:
Stress and Coping of Children with Sickle Cell Disease
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001

Objective: The purpose of this study is to identify the relationships among the perception of stressfulness of having sickle cell disease (SCD), specific stressors for African-American school-age children, coping strategies utilized, and adaptational outcomes of the coping process including psychological well-being, social functioning, and academic competence. Design: The descriptive study will compare school-age African-American children with sickle cell disease to a group of school-age African-American children without SCD. Sample: The sample will ultimately include 150 African-American school-age (5-11 years), 75 children with SCD and 75 controls recruited from the same community, matched on gender and age. To date, data collection has been completed for 20 children with SCD and 10 children in the control group. Setting: Data from the children with SCD and their parents are being collected in a clinic setting. Data from the children without SCD and their parents are being collected in a variety of settings in the community. Concepts: Coping, perception of stresses, adaptation. Measures: Data is being collected from the children with Child Attitude toward Illness Scale, Feel Bad Scale, Schoolager's Coping Strategies Inventory, Child Drawing: Sense of Well-being, and Self-perception Profile for Children. In addition, demographic data is being collected from parents along with their perception of their children's competency in certain activities or behaviors. Findings: Preliminary findings will be based on the data collected from the sample between September 2000 and September 2001. Relationships among variable will be determined with correlational procedures, while differences between the two groups will be determined with procedures to determine differences. Implications: The findings of this study will add to the meager knowledge about specific concerns of children with SCD and how they perceive their ability to cope with SCD. The data will reveal coping strategies associated with more effective or less effective adaptations for child as they with the stressors of SCD. In addition, the findings of the study will indicate if there are differences in the stressors and coping strategies for children with SCD in comparison to children without SCD, the data obtained will be used to develop an intervention protocol to promote optimal adaptation of school-age African-American children with SCD.
