JARAMILLO, Sonia; MORENO, Socorro  e  RODRIGUEZ, Viviana. Emotional Burden in Parents of Children with Trisomy 21: Descriptive Study in a Colombian Population. Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.1, pp.29-38. ISSN 1657-9267.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11144/Javeriana.upsy15-1.ebpc.

The role of a parent with a disabled child can be highly demanding. There are few publications concerning parental emotional exhaustion in Latin America. The present prevalent case-controlled study evaluated the frequency of emotional exhaustion in 103 parental couples of parents of children with Down Syndrome (DS); likewise the study explores the rate of emotionally exhausted and depressed mothers in comparison with the fathers. This outcome was measured using a modified and validated version of the Maslach Burnout Inventory. The results showed a prevalence of emotional exhaustion of 52.64%. In the matched-pair analysis we found a higher chance of exhaustion in mothers in comparison with their partners.
