This article uses, as a framework, research focused on the psychological aspects of rehabilitating people with physical disabilities. In this study the cases of 44 women with spinal cord injury (SCI) were analyzed with regards to the relationship between a series of psychological variables and another group of clinical variables, all of them relevant in the SCI adaptation process. In general the results of this study show the subjects as independent as measured by various psychological scales and other analyzed clinical variables. These data reflect the existence of individualized adaptation processes and empirically support the individual differences model in studying the SCI adaptation process.
