Abstract

Laures-Gore, Hammilton, and Matheny (2007) found that individuals with aphasia (IWA) have greater perceived stress and fewer perceived coping resources to deal with stressors than healthy controls. The present study further explores this finding by examining which coping resources are most affected in IWA. The perceived coping resources of confidence, social support, financial freedom, stress monitoring, tension control, and acceptance in IWA were compared to right brain damage and healthy individuals. IWA differed from these groups in the areas of perceived confidence, stress monitoring, tension control, and acceptance. Clinical implications are discussed.
