The results showed that there are risk factors which become the initial process in the dynamics of resilience on single-parent mother who has a child with double-handicap, such as family dysfunction, financial and social problems, parenting stress on the mother and a belief that mystical factor was causing the problems. Those problems raised negative impacts on psychological and physical condition.
