Title: Ostomates: diagnosis, surgery and rehabilitation. A symbolic interactionist perspective on an illustration of spoiled identity
Authors: Nagler, Mark I.
Issue Date: 1978
Publisher: University of Stirling
Abstract: From the introduction: This investigation examines from a symbolic interactionist perspective, a case of spoiled identity - a segment of the physically disabled who find themselves subject to ostomatic status. Spoiled identity evolves when a person has had, or believes that he has had, the characteristics which normally define his presence in day to day interaction compromised. In these situations, the person is perceived by himself and/or others as possessing characteristics which are often negatively defined. Spoiled identity, as defined by self or others, often serves to create barriers in interaction between the bearer of the spoiled identity and various members of society.
