ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the study that seeks to determine the emotional problems of physically handicapped adolescents in the U.S. During the group discussion, most of the subjects were at ease in talking about practical problems rather than emotional ones and they also conveyed fantasies of miraculous recovery. Only few of the boys felt who were recently injured felt embarrassed and sensed that girls would not want them. On the other hand, those whose disabilities were present already for a longer duration said that they no longer fear contact with girls.
