MetadataShow full item record
The paper addresses the question of posttraumatic growth (PTG) and posttraumatic depreciation (PTD) in people with a mobility disability due to a traumatic event. The aim of the study was to determine the level of PTG and PTD, as well as their relationship in the group of the a/m survivors, and to identify the contribution of beliefs about their internal and external world to accounting for variability in both posttraumatic experiences. The sample comprised individuals with a spinal cord injury and lower extremity amputation due to a traumatic event. Posttraumatic growth and depreciation were identified in the same aspects. Obtained results point to higher growth when compared to depreciation in all considered dimensions. Significant negative correlations between them, as well as a predictive utility of beliefs in accounting for the level of posttraumatic growth and depreciation were observed. Among others, it was found that with the help of beliefs mainly about the surrounding world, the level of depreciation may be predicted to a larger extent than in the case of growth in the examined individuals.
