SOURCES OF INTERPERSONAL ANXIETY IN THE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED.
KINNANE, JOHN F.; SUZIEDELIS, ANTANAS
THE MAIN PURPOSE OF THE 2-YEAR STUDY WAS TO MEASURE THE SOURCES OF INTERPERSONAL CONCERN AMONG THE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED. BASED ON SCHULZ'S THREE-DIMENSIONAL MODEL OF INTERPERSONAL INTERACTION, "THE SCHEDULE OF INTERPERSONAL CONCERNS" WAS DEVELOPED. THIS INSTRUMENT CONTAINS 59 ITEMS DIVIDED INTO FIVE FACTORS--REJECTION, RESPONSIBILITY, PERSONAL INTRUSION, SOCIAL ENMESHMENT, AND INDEPENDENCE. THREE GROUPS OF THE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED WERE CHOSEN FOR APPLICATION OF THE INSTRUMENT. THE TWO GROUPS WITH SENSORY HANDICAPS (56 DEAF AND 42 BLIND) WERE PREDICTED TO SHOW CONCERN OVER REJECTION. THE GROUP OF 38 CARDIOVASCULAR HANDICAPPED WAS EXPECTED TO SHOW CONCERN OVER THE CONTROL DIMENSION OR INDEPENDENCE. CONTROL SAMPLES OF 71 "NORMAL" PEOPLE WERE MATCHED TO EACH OF THE HANDICAPPED GROUPS. DETAILED COMPARISON OF THE DATA (T-TEST) SHOWED SIGNIFICANT SUPPORT OF THE HYPOTHESES. SOME LIMITATIONS OF THE INSTRUMENT OR SAMPLING PROCEDURES WITH THE DEAF WERE NOTED. ANALYSIS WITHIN HANDICAPPED GROUPS INDICATED THAT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL MEANINGS OF A PHYSICAL HANDICAP ARE RELATED TO LIFE STAGES AND OCCUPATIONAL LEVELS. FURTHER RESEARCH IN THIS AREA IS SUGGESTED.
