In 2003-2004 during a research about of the families taking care of disabled children or adults, we have created the criteria of coping successfully. Interpreting through this filter the resulting data and the responses a coping profile has outlined. Ten years later, we repeated the survey and found, that during the interpretation of the data, the coping criteria from the first research is not sustainable. To better understand this phenomenon, we have performed in-depth interviews and we have added a CHIP (Coping Health Inventory For Parents) questionnaire that provides insight to coping behaviors used by parents. Th e results we have obtained further highlighted our suspicion that the factor of successful coping from the first period of facing disabilities has significantly changed through the years.
Th is phenomenon can be interpreted not only in terms of the life of individual families, but also shows the overlaps and differences between the meaning of the term “coping” and “resilience”, and the professional challenge brought by the supported resilience in the ‚overseeing’ of these families.
Keywords: coping, supported resilience, families with disabled children, resilience supporting model
