Abstract

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a condition in which a child have damage to the brain which results in the absence of muscle control, posture abnormalities and movement barriers. CP is a condition that is suffered throughout lifetime. Nurturing children with CP certainly causes stress. So that to minimize it requires special competence in the parents. Resilience is considered as emotional and psychosocial strength, leading to courage and rationality in facing adversity. Resilience will help parents with CP children to adapt to unpleasant conditions. This study aims to describe the resilience of parents with CP children. Using qualitative methods, subjects were 2 mothers and had children with CP. Data collection used were interviews, techniques were phenomenological analysis and descriptive validation. This study describes that research subjects are able to apply the aspects of resilience namely causal analysis, emotional regulation, impulse control, optimism, self-efficacy, empathy and reaching out in caring for CP children so that they are assessed as resilient parents. In addition, they can be resilient due to other supporting factors such as learning, sincerity, support for family and environment, religiosity and proximity to God.
