Abstract

 Background and Purpose: Without the eyesight, individuals’ perception of the surrounding world is different, and this can lead to emotional and social problems such as SOCIAL ANXIETY, low self-concept, and negative BODY-IMAGE. The purpose of this study was to study SOCIAL ANXIETY, SELF-IMAGE, and body image in students with and without VISUAL IMPAIRMENT.Method: The present study was a causal-comparative study. The statistical population included all male students in Tehran who were studying in the academic year of 2016-2017. The sample included 70 blind students aged 14-18 years old who were selected by convenience sampling method from Shahid Mohebbi Blind center. Also, a group of 70 normal students were selected by random cluster sampling from schools in Tehran. SOCIAL ANXIETY inventory (Conner, 2000), body image test (Fisher, 1970) and children’s self-concept scale (Piers, 1969) were used to collect data. Multivariate analysis of variance was used to analyze the data.Results: The results of this study showed that there is a significant difference in the SOCIAL ANXIETY, self-concept, and body image between students with and without VISUAL IMPAIRMENT (P˂ 0.05).Conclusion: The results of this study showed that people with VISUAL IMPAIRMENT are more exposed to higher SOCIAL ANXIETY, lower self-concept and more negative body image than those without VISUAL IMPAIRMENT. Therefore, by designing appropriate educational programs for parents and teachers, it should help to develop a sense of being positive, assertiveness and intimate in children with VISUAL IMPAIRMENT.
