Title: Monoparentalidad y resiliencia
Author: López Fuentetaja, Mercedes
Tutor: Pellicer Cardona, Isabel  
Abstract: Objective. This research has studied the conditions of vulnerability and social stigma associated with lone parenthood and its relationship with the variable resilience. Method: Self-administration in online format of questionnaires to 92 parents of lone-parent families and 75 non-lone parent adults. Questionnaires administered to the two groups have consisted of a resilience scale and, for loneparent families, a scale has also been included to learn about their adversity conditions. Results. Both groups have scored very high on resilience and there does not appear to be a significant relationship between lone parent variable and resilience. Only these small differences have been found: loneparent families have scored slightly higher in the creativity resilient factor and slightly lower in the rest of the resilient factors, especially in the independence factor. Conclusions. The strong presence of social stigma associated with lone parenthood causes guilt, negatively affects their mental health, and makes it difficult to build resilience. In addition, there are several limitations in the research design that could have affected the results: defects in the sample, the historical moment of the pandemic may have boosted resilience across the population and the existence of a negative correlation between resilience and anxiety and depression. The findings found have revealed the magnitude of the complex relationship between resilience and individual parenthood, which requires a more in-depth further analysis, and it is considered necessary to continue with its research in a more qualitative manner.
