Traumatic Stress Following Spinal Cord Injury, pp. 447-463 $100.00
Authors:  Rushina Harishkumar Bhatt and Samuel T. Gontkovsky
The devastating consequences of a spinal cord injury (SCI) may influence
detrimentally a personís psychological well-being. Indeed, it has been suggested that SCI
can result in loss of sensation, impaired mobility, problems with bladder and bowel
control, sexual dysfunction, and chronic pain (Elliott & Rivera, 2003), while also
impacting a personís cognitive and emotional functioning. Psychological issues
following SCI are important to consider, whether in terms of assessment, recovery,
rehabilitation, coping, or caregiving. Lack of knowledge about psychological issues
involved in SCI can make people uncomfortable or hesitant about their interactions with
those who have SCI. This chapter will help readers acquire an increased understanding
and perhaps sensitivity to the distress an individual may experience after sustaining a
spinal cord injury. An emphasis will be placed on Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
in particular, following SCI. This is accomplished by first reviewing empirical studies
and then shifting to a discussion of human experiences and existential issues in SCI.
Letís begin by examining the impact of SCI on the perception of the most important
person in the treatmentóthe patient.
