Self-Esteem, Family Satisfaction, and Cognitive Distortion of Young People with Visual Impairment: An Explanatory Sequential Mixed Methods Approach


Young people with visual impairment need holistic and pragmatic support to be able to maximize their potential to the fullest. Thus, this study delved into the pressing issues and concerns regarding how the relationships and qualitative results of the three variables namely, self-esteem, family satisfaction, and cognitive distortion affect Young People with visual impairment (YPVI) in the Philippines. This study adapted an explanatory sequential mixed methods approach, which included 62 respondents for the quantitative data phase and 5 respondents for the qualitative phase. Most of the respondents have low levels of self-esteem and family satisfaction but manifested very low levels of cognitive distortions. Additionally, high levels of self-esteem were associated with lower levels of cognitive distortion, and vice versa. Family satisfaction was not perceived to have a significant association with their self-esteem. Through the qualitative results, low levels of self-esteem were due to the dismissive evaluation of self and frustrations with self-development; low levels of family satisfaction can be attributed to apprehensive handling of family conflicts, burdensome family pressures, and feeling of emotional neglect; and high levels of cognitive distortion were due to mental filter ruminations.
