Attitudes toward Children with Severe Burns.
Holaday, Margot; Wolfson, Aaron
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v41 n1 p54-69 Sep 1997
Examined reasons for negative attitudes toward children with severe burns by surveying 226 counseling and rehabilitation students. Results suggest that pessimistic expectations and negative attitudes built on conjecture are due to four sources: social standards of beauty, emotionality of the observer, reminders of personal vulnerability, and assumption of social contamination by association.
