Psychometric Properties of a Polish Version of the Parental Stress Index III (PSI III)

AbstractThe Parenting Stress Index (PSI) has been translated into multiple languages. The aim of the present study was to develop a Polish version of the PSI III. A total sample size of 678 parents (308 parents of children with ASD, 59 parents of children with Down syndrome, 65 parents of deaf children, 34 parents of children with other developmental disorders, and 212 parents without developmental disabilities) participated in the study. The Polish version of the PSI III was characterized by: (1) good internal consistency, (2) a three-factor structure, including Parent domain, Child domain, and the children ’s and parents’ difficulties in adapting to the external demands resulting from the children’s developmental disorder, and (3) negative correlations between parental stress and parental well-being. Implications for the research and clinical practice are discussed.

Conclusions: The role of occupational therapists in ICU rehabilitation is not currently well established. Current interventions in the ICU are dominated by physical rehabilitation with a growing role in communication and delirium prevention and care. Given the diverse needs of ICU patients and the scope of occupational therapy, there could be an opportunities for occupational therapists to expand their role and spearhead original research investigating an enriched breadth of ICU interventions.

“Every vote will count in this election” and we need to persuade people to register to vote – and to register for a postal vote. It’s crucial to “get that message out in the workplace, to family and friends.” UNISON assistant general secretary Christina McAnea (pictured above) was addressing the union’s LGBT+ conference in Bournemouth this morning, with less than a month to go before the general election. She stressed that research shows that UNISON and its reps are trusted by the membership – and because of that, they have the potential to make a real difference when po...

Being a parent is a challenge no matter what. Being a single parent, of course, requires even more responsibility and sacrifice. Being a single parent to a child facing severe intellectual disabilities, however, is a trial few among us could even imagine. Leon Borensztein, a Polish-born photographer and single father, lived this challenging tale. He began photographing his daughter, Sharon, before she was born. Now, approximately 30 years later, he's still going. Soon after Sharon's birth, Leon and his former wife could sense something wasn't right. After months of testing, the various diagnoses began to roll in: blind...
