Abstract:

The present volume is concerned with one segment of the relation between man and his physique, namely, the somatopsychological problem as seen in disablement. Written for the practitioner in the field of rehabilitation, especially for the professional in training, the emphasis is on the kinds of social-psychological situations that confront a person with an atypical physique, and how he copes with them. Factors within the person and factors attributable to the environment are considered in terms of how they aid psychological adjustment or, on the negative side, how they create difficulties. The author cautions that many topics of importance to the problem of adjustment to disability do not appear within the pages of this volume, the reasons for exclusion being varied. Further, there is no doubt that to some extent the contents of this volume have been shaped by preconceived notions. However, it should also be noted that such notions have been reshaped as the evidence of scientific investigation and considered opinion added to the perspective of the person as an active agent in meeting the impositions of a disability.
