Abstract

There have been six conceptual frameworks commonly used to study family responses to severe mental illness: Family Expressed Emotion, Family Caregiving Burden, Family Resiliency Model, Family Stress and Coping Model, Attribution Theory and Theory of Redefining Parental Identity. The Theory of Redefining Parental Identity by P.J. Milliken is described here wider because of its specific phenomenological method of characterizing occurrence of caregiving for a person with severe mental illness. Family Expressed Emotion blames for relapses in schizophrenia the family, Family Caregiving Burden describes only negative aspects of caregiving. Family Resiliency Model, Family Stress and Coping Model, and Attribution Theory in comparison to above mentioned frameworks, were build on basis on normal population and enable to describe testing variables more objectively. They include spectrum of features of caregiving for the mentally ill. Theory of Redefining Parental Identity in comparison to five mentioned frameworks highlights specificity and dynamics of the phenomenon of care for patients with severe mental illness.
