Abstract (English)  :

The conceptual framework that has been widely used to study the coping strategies of parents of preterm infants in neonatal intensive care units (NICU) has been the transactional model of stress and coping proposed by Lazarus and colleagues. This model supports the cognitive system as the key factor in stress transactions. The cognitive system produces an interpretation of events that leads to making sense of numerous sensations and perceptions from both external and social sources as well as from the internal physiological environment. The individual cognitive system appraises stimuli in two ways: primary appraisal and secondary appraisal. Another factor that may influence the individual’s coping effort is gender difference. Mothers and fathers of preterm infants have been found to use different coping strategies to deal with the preterm birth. Other factors such as personality traits and the perceived and actual availability of social support may also influence the parents’ coping effort. Implications for clinical practice by the NICU interdisciplinary team are considered.
