This research has been conducted as the initial stage of the corresponding authors PhD thesis. The presented work is a singular research project conducted to advise future research with the targeted population. The overall research thesis utilises the theory of Participatory Action Research.
“Participatory action research (PAR) differs from most other approaches to public health research because it is based on reflection, data collection, and action that aims to improve health and reduce health inequities through involving the people who, in turn, take actions to improve their own health.” (Baum et al. 2006, p. 854).
Matthew Snow and James Donnelly have contributed equally to all aspects of this work.
This study compared levels of state affect, dysphoric mood, and parenting sense of competence in Australian parents of children with or without autism. The effects of personality and location on the parents’ experience were also examined, while controlling for current affect. Possible relationships among personality, location factors and help-seeking behavior were also explored in parents of children with autism. Prior findings of higher dysphoric mood levels in parents of children with autism were supported, as was the positive correlation between dysphoric moods and Neuroticism levels. Parenting Sense of Competence did not differ across locations, and there were no parent type by location interactions. Access to services among parents of a child with autism did not moderate dysphoria levels.
