Abstract:
Purpose: To determine the effect of education on coping strategies of mothers with educable mentally retard children in Lale special schools in Yasuj city. Background: Mental retardation occurs in 1 percent of population of every country, and is defined as deficit and decreasing intelligent and adjustment functioning present before 18 years old. The patients, who suffer from this chronic disturbance, will be diagnosed as educable mental retards if their IQs are less than 70. These disabilities not only influence these children but also affect the behavior and attitude of their mothers. These changes increase the stress felt by these mothers. Antay-Otong emphasized that appropriate coping strategies must be carried out to decrease a person's stress levels. Design: In this quasi-experimental research, 64 mothers with educable mentally retard children were selected according to research criterion, and then divided into a case group and a control group randomly. In order to collect information various questionnaires were used, such as personal questionnaires, degree of knowledge questionnaires, and coping strategy evaluation questionnaires. In this research, education was the independent variable and was determined based on 4 general 1 hour sessions (including reading, question and answer exercises and a film presentation ) and 20 minute long individual sessions (including face to face communication and individual education). Gathered data, which was collected before and after intervention for case group and control group, were analyzed by chi- square statistical test, T- student, paired T- test, ANOVA and Tukey procedure by SPSS software. Results: The findings of this research showed that the case group mothers used problem-focused coping strategies more than control group (P<0.001). Although after education the use of emotion-focused strategies decreased, there were no significant differences between before and after education results in the case group and between the case group and control group (P=/22). Results also showed that case group mothers were less successful with coping strategies than the control group (P<0.001). Conclusion: By looking at the results of most studies, these show that problem-focused coping strategies are more adaptable coping strategies and have positive relationships with mental health. From the results, it is apparent that mothers of mentally retarded children must seek help by classical education on mental retardation after their children have been diagnosed with this disorder, and that they should employ more problem-focused strategies.
