Abstract:
Study examined the relationship between social problem-solving abilities and psychological adjustment of individuals participating in low vision rehabilitation. Correlational and multiple regression analyses were used to test the hypothesis that negative problem orientation would predict emotional distress, depressive behavior, satisfaction with life, and functional ability. Results showed that a negative problem orientation significantly predicted depression and emotional distress, but not life satisfaction. Rational problem-solving predicted life satisfaction.
