SELF-VALUING, ATTITUDE TOWARD SELF AND TOWARD LIFE OF PEOPLE WITH MOTOR DISABILITIES
Keywords:motor disability, attitude toward the self, attitude toward life, self-valuing, gender perspective, nature of the disability (innate or acquired),
The actual research has pursued the investigation of the attitude
toward the self and the attitude toward life of the women and men
with motor disabilities and also analised the self-valuing of people
with motor disabilities depending on the nature of the disability
(innate or acquired) and the level of education (N - 93 subjects).
Women more than men, feel that the presence of disability is affecting
their attitude toward the self and toward life. Comparing the results
for self-valuing, depending on the nature of the disability - innate or
acquired, we found a breakdown of the results in favor of innate
disabilities. People with innate motor disability are self-valuing
better than those who have acquired disability during the life
