Sense of purpose in life in the context of coping strategies used by young adults with visual impairments
Languages of publication
Coping activity preferred by people and its effectiveness depend on a number of personality and social factors related to the specific character of a difficult situation. In the coping process, considerable significance is attributed to personality variables - including the ability to find a sense of purpose in life. The article attempts to empirically determine the nature of the relationship between a sense of purpose in life and coping styles used by young adults with visual impairments and nondisabled young adults. Correlation analysis showed there was a connection between the participants' sense of purpose in life and the coping styles they preferred. A higher sense of purpose in life co-occurred with a preference for more adaptive coping styles in young adults with visual impairments and nondisabled young adults. On the other hand, a lower sense of purpose in life was related to less adaptive coping styles, which shows that it is reasonable to take a positive stance on the hypothesis formulated.
