Abstract:
Described as one of the most challenging events an individual can face (Evans et al., in press), the legacy of impairment following Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) often has lifelong consequences. Appraisals have been highlighted as a potentially important, but under researched construct, with regard to adjustment to SCI (Pollard & Kennedy, 2007). Furthermore, it has been argued that self-report measures specifically designed for SCI should be developed (Elfstrom et al, 2002). The current study aimed to develop a -reliable and valid appraisal scale (The Primary and Secondary Appraisals of Disability Scale; PSADS) for adult SCI populations.
