YOUNG PEOPLE WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENTS IN DIFFICULT SITUATIONS
Abstract:The problem of puberty and the functioning of young people in society is the object of constant psychological studies. This question also pertains to teenagers with visual impairments for whom disability in itself is a difficult situation. My investigations using the Emotional Factors Inventory (EFI) of Bauman (1960), the Adjective Check List (ACL; Gough & Heilbrun, 1971) and an Unfinished Sentences Test of my own invention, permitted me to study the reactions of teenagers with visual disability in comparison to their nonimpaired peers. The age of the participants in the study ranged from 14 – 15 years and 18 – 19 years. The results do not imply a direct relationship between disability and behavior in difficult situations; reactions depend on other factors.
