dc.description.abstractSpinal cord injury (SCI) is a catastrophic injury which can change the lives of an individual and their family in an instant. Much research in the field of SCI has focused upon the burden and distress brought about by SCI, however recent studies have considered individuals and families who have adjusted well to SCI, demonstrating strength and resilience. At the same time, within the wider areas of health and disability interest is growing regarding the role of spirituality in building resilience. Spirituality has been identified as a key process contributing toward family resilience, but few studies have investigated this relationship empirically. Studies of the role of spirituality after SCI are growing in number, but have tended to focus upon the injured individual, rather than the wider family context. Many questions remain unanswered regarding the role of spirituality within the family after SCI, and over time. Furthermore, very little research has considered staff perceptions or clinical implications regarding the role of spirituality after SCI.
