OLIVEIRA, Isaura Gisele de  and  POLETTO, Michele. Emotional experiences of mothers and fathers of children with disabilities. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2015, vol.16, n.2, pp. 102-119. ISSN 1677-2970.

This research aimed at reviewing the scientific literature in the national literature indexed in Psychology, and at identifying the emotional experiences of mothers and fathers of sons with disabilities. A search was held in three databases (SciELO, PePSIC, LILACS), using the keywords: mothers, fathers and disabilities. Nineteen (19) articles were identified and analyzed. It was found that there is a lack of studies on this subject. In addition, it was shown that parents have initial feelings of shock, sadness, guilt, insecurity and fear, but over time adapt to the new reality by organizing themselves.

Keywords : mothers; fathers; disabilities.
