Abstract

Date Presented 4/7/2016

Sense of Coherence (SOC) proposes that when people have an understanding of a challenge, tools to manage it, and a sense of purpose, they are able to cope. Associations were found in this study between a strong SOC in caregivers of children with autism spectrum disorder and a better quality of life.
