Self-Concept and Deafness: A Review of Research Literature.
Garrison, Wayne M.; Tesch, Stephanie
The paper reviews some of the research literature relating to self concept and deafness. In summarizing the relevant research, attention was given to the types of questions to which researchers have sought answers, the theoretical orientations which have guided investigations, and the kinds of methodological problems which have characterized research in this field. It was noted that the severest limitation in research with the deaf rested with the inappropriateness of testing devices, a situation not uncommon to research on personality attributes of other groups of persons. Moreover, the need to investigate self concept from a developmental perspective was viewed as central to the task of better understanding the life adjustment of the deaf individual. (Author)
