Self-Concept and Social Interaction in a Deaf Population.
Garrison, Wayne M; And Others
Investigated were self concept levels of 109 deaf college students, and examined were social interaction behaviors among a subset of 27 Ss from the study sample. Results of the Tennessee Self Concept Scale indicated a response pattern demonstrating psychological distress or maladjustment, but reliability and comprehension analysis suggested that a deaf person may approach such a test with restricted or unusual interpretations of item stimuli. Results of the performance of 27 Ss on the Social Performance Indicator revealed that assertiveness and self identity in groups were directly related to individual self concept. (CL)
