Adaptation to disability and self-esteem as components of happiness of people with disabilities (Master thesis)

Βορδώνη, Παναγιώτα


The aim of the present dissertation was to explore happiness of people with disabilities and specificly people with visual, hearing, physical disability or chronic illness as well as to examine the impact of self-esteem and adaptation to disability in shaping happiness. At the same time, the survey examines whether demographic data and disability-related items are regulatory factors that determine the levels of happiness. Statistical analysis has shown that adaptation to disability, self-esteem, type of disability, physical pain, and satisfaction with relationships with relatives are important predictors of happiness. In addition, happiness of people with disabilities has been differentiated on the basis of some individual characteristics, such as duration of disability, employment status, educational level, leisure activities, mood of giving information about disability, and satisfaction with relationships with friends. The results are discussed on the basis of the pre-existing bibliography, while proposals are made for the development of appropriate educational interventions in student population.
