Abstract:
Longitudinal study of the relationship between perceived stress in persons with spinal cord injury and variables representing injury severity, disability, and psychosocial functioning. Data are from physical examinations, interviews, and tests conducted in 1990, 1993, and 1996 with 187 persons who sustained SCI prior to 1971. No associations were found between perceived stress and variables representing injury severity or physical independence, but stress was related to several measures of adjustment or coping.
