Compared 222 parents (mean age 54.7 yrs) of adult children who had a psychiatric disability with 434 parents (mean age 53.7 yrs) with a nondisabled adult child. Data for the analysis were gathered from J. A. Cook et al (1994) and from S. A. Pickett et al (see records 82-14894 and 81-11124). Results revealed that parents' positive appraisals of their relationship with the target child was significantly predicted by their perceived caregiving burden, but not by their child's psychiatric status. Implications for interventions that enhance parent/adult child relationships are discussed, as well as implications for families, consumers, and service providers. (Authors)
