Epilepsy is a common childhood neurological disorder. Mothers of children with epilepsy are at risk for poor adaptation because of the many demands placed on them. In addition to dealing with the stresses of everyday life, mothers of children with epilepsy are faced with managing a chronic condition in their child that is unpredictable, sometimes difficult to control, and often stigmatized. Few studies have examined factors predicting maternal adaptation to a child's epilepsy. The purpose of this ongoing research is to test a model of maternal adaptation (positive affect, confidence in seizure management, authoritative parenting) based on child factors (seizure severity, pubertal status, neurocognitive functioning, and behavior problems), maternal perceptions(stigma, worries and concerns, seizure control, impact on family), and maternal resources (social support family functioning, learned helplessness/learned resourcefulness). The model concepts are operationlized using instruments that have demonstrated good validity and reliability in previous studies. It is predicted that the model will account for a significant proportion of the variance in maternal adaptation to childhood epilepsy. A sample of 160 mothers of children aged 9-14 who have epilepsy is currently being recruited, with over 100 participating to date. Analyses will include multiple regression and structural equation modeling.
