National Taiwan Normal University Department of Special Education
The main purposes of this study were to explore the capacity for resilience in adults with acquired blindness, to analyze the factors correlated with this resilience, to construct working models of such resilience in these adults, and to better understand their situation. To achieve these purposes, the study adopted a grounded theory approach to qualitative research. 16 well-adjusted adults with acquired blindness, aged 20 to 60 years, were selected as samples through purposive sampling. By means of in-depth interviews, the study collected the necessary data. Research data was then encoded and analyzed by Nudist 6.0. The main findings of the study were as follows: (1) there were different tasks and challenges in each of the various stages of ”resilience” for adults with acquired blindness; (2) the roles of individual, family and society had a definite impact on the resilience of these adults; (3) motivational factors, obstructive factors, helpful factors and coping strategies interactively influenced the resilience of these adults; (4) this resilience depended on the interaction between and among individuals’ internal and external resources; and (5) becoming mature and helping others were central to the final stages of resilience for adults with acquired blindness.
