Quality of Life: Individualism or Holism? A Critical Review of the Literature.
Dossa, Parin A.
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v12 n2 p121-36 1989
This critical literature review shows that studies of quality of life (QOL) for persons with disabilities follow a sharp dichotomy between subjective and objective approaches, whereas the phenomenon of QOL calls for a holistic approach. QOL is examined in terms of dynamic integration of the individual into the society. (Author/JDD)
