Résumé

Hearing loss is an invisible condition that affects communication and social interaction. For many individuals, sudden or gradual loss of their hearing, either partial or total, constitutes a dramatic event that demands specific adjustments. Although a few studies have explored personal variables associated with the adaptation process in the presence of a hearing loss, to our knowledge, no study has explored resilience in adults with acquired deafness. Our main purpose was to gain a better understanding of resilience in the context of a postlingual hearing loss. We measured resilience in 35 adults with acquired deafness using the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC). Participants, aged 20 to 84 years, filled out the CD-RISC and a sociodemographic questionnaire electronically via a secure website. We gathered information on the degree of hearing loss, hearing device use, education, and living arrangements. We then examined potential predictors of resilience score, using a regression model. Degree of hearing loss and living arrangements were both associated with resilience. Our results suggest that resilience is an evolutionary process influenced by external factors. On a clinical level, our results reinforce the importance of personal and environmental factors in adults with acquired deafness and the importance of taking resilience capacities into account. © 2017, Canadian Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists.
