Psychological adaptation among racial and ethnic minority individuals following spinal cord injury: A proposed culturally inclusive ecological model

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Building on the work of G. Uswatte and T. R. Elliott (1997) and recent rehabilitation counseling theoretical writings (e.g., D. B. Hershenson, 1998), a culturally inclusive ecological model of spinal cord injury adaptation is proposed. The purpose of the model is to integrate and extend existing literature to better examine factors leading to differential psychosocial outcomes. An important component of the model is explicating general as well as socioracial and ethnic factors potentially influencing the adaptation process.
