Project description

Parental burnout (PB) develops as a response to chronic parenting stress. Given that parenting a child with autism spectrum disorder or cerebral palsy brings along tremendous challenges, this project aims to evaluate to what extent these parents experience PB and to examine which parent, context and child factors and temporal dynamics tip these parents ‘over the edge’ of PB.
