A pilot study of handicapped athletes' stress and coping mechanisms



A pilot study of handicapped athletes' stress and coping mechanisms



Journal of Expanding Horizons in Therapeutic Recreation 2(2): 51-56



A pilot study was designed to investigate perceived levels of stress, major sources of stress and coping mechanisms of handicapped athletes who participated in the 1985 National Cerebral Palsy/Les Autres Games on the campus of Michigan State University, USA. Findings indicate that severely impaired athletes with highly visable disabilities did not, in general, have a higher perceived stress level than athletes with less severe impairments.
