about this bookdeutsch english
A spinal cord injury affects the life-course of a person in a variety of ways. Biographies of individuals who have had this experience in their lives, offer the opportunity of an insight-view into chances and conditions for dealing with the experience. In this book, life-courses are presented and analyzed by people who have lived with paraplegia since their adolescence. The social environment and the personality structure have an impact on dealing with an impairment. It allowes an insight-view of the experience wich people with paraplegia share, as well as how different limitations and boundries beyond the medically conditions are described. Different aspects of life such as living with the familie, changes in sexuality issues, as well as rehabilitation and wheelchair sports are discussed. The aim of the study is to describe the former biographical meaning of the past events, and the importance of the intended self-presentation in the present. The important questions are, which re-stabilization strategies can be mobilized to overcome a crisis and which coping-strategies are helpful for dealing with spinal cord injury. The terms and factors of developing an identity with the paraplegia are not adequately researched and presented in the current scientific debate. By using the Interpretative Social Research Method by Gabriele Rosenthal the life experiences of people with spinal cord injury are presented and embedded into the biographical context. This helps to close the current research gap in this research field to some extent.
