Abstract:   (14350 Views)
Objectives: Happiness, life satisfaction and hope are concepts that most people seek in the industrial era and machine life. Disabilities and physical problems are among the factors affecting the aforementioned concepts. Here we have compared disabled individuals’ hope, happiness and life satisfaction with those of normal subjects.
Method & Material: A causal – comparative study was conducted. Thirty disabled individuals and 30 individuals without disabilities were selected from three nongovernmental institutes for the disabled through convenience sampling. The subjects completed the questionnaires on Hope, Happiness and Life Satisfaction. One way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to analyze data.
Results: Happiness, hope, and life satisfaction were significantly lower in persons with disabilities than those without them (p<0.001). Disabled people have lower happiness, hope and life satisfaction.
Conclusion: Disabled people need more psychological interventions to boost their happiness, hope and life satisfaction.
