The psychological consequences of the long-term spinal cord injured and the impact of psychological variables on adjustment to injury have recently got increasing attention.

Thirty-eight persons with spinal cord injury completed the Korean Self-Concept Scale(revised Tennessee Self-Concept Scale) and examined 10 demographic factors including injury level of the spinal cord, severity of the injury, marital status, time after injury bladder condition, residence, education, motivation, pain, and activity.

The results were as follows;

1) Compared to normal controls, significantly lower scores in the Physical Self(t=-4.23), the Family Self(t=-2.44) and the Total Self(t=-2.60) were obtained in the subject group.

2) The Physical Self was significantly related with severity of the injury(f=4.28), marital status(F=2.37), bladder condition(F=10.60), residence(F=5.04), education(F=4.31), and motivation(F=5.60).

3) The Family self was significantly related with the severity of spinal cord injury(F=4.23) and pain(F=3.61).

4) The Total Self was significantly related with the severity of spinal cord injury(F=5.22) and pain(F=10.42).
