Subjective perception of disability as assessed by disabled artists and authors

Małgorzata Janowska-Matuszewska


During the period of adjustment to a chronic illness or to a disability, the community that the disabled person lives in must give him or her individual attention in order to help him or her survive the hardest time as well as learn to live in their new reality. The research was carried out among a group of disabled people: members of the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists AMUN (24 people) as well as disabled people doing various kinds of artistic work (38 people), altogether 62 people. Following measures were employed in the research: health psychology test – Acceptance of Illness Scale– AIS (Z. Juczyński, 2001) and an interview questionnaire.
