  1. Patricia L. Buczynski

     /  11 December, 2013

    I am conducting a study of the effect of adult onset disability on the sense of self or identity
    of women . Very little research has been conducted on pre-disability identity and post-iidentity effect on women who live their life as an physical or mental non-disabled individual and through trauma or onset of a genetic condition must live their life as an disabled person. Because this area has not been explored I would like women of all ages from 21 years and above to email me their experiences in narrative forms. I would like them to adress three concepts of identity formation in terms of how their llife may have changed or if it didn’t change: 1) their overall confidence (work, school, interacting with others);2) their conception of their own body and how they appeared to others;; and,
    3) their confidence or comfort in sex an with significant other.

    My name is Patricia Buczynski, Ph.D. I became disabled as an adult. I have published in the area of identity formation. I am a member of APA and also the Division on Psychology of Disability of Psychology. I currently conduct independent research. There needs to be more information on what women go through after facing a disability in adulthood. Does her overall sense of self change? How do people view her now? Can she still maintain her position, her career?

    My email address is plbuczynski1@gmail.com; my phone number is 517-215-6555.
    If there is anything that yo can do to advertise my study it would be most helpful. All the results will be confidential. Women are encouraged to go into as much detail as they feel comfortable with to tell their story. Demographics such as age, sexual orientation, single or time with partner of either sex would be helpful.
