OBJECTIVE: We assessed whether functional capacity predicts self-esteem in people
with cerebral palsy (CP). METHOD: We conducted a cross-sectional observational
study of 108 people with CP, ages 16-65 yr, who were residents of Spain.
Self-esteem was captured using the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES), and
functional capacity using the Barthel Index (BI). Sociodemographic
characteristics were recorded. The relationship between the RSES score and the BI
score was analyzed using linear regression. RESULTS: RSES scores increased
significantly as BI scores increased (regression coefficient = 0.047, 95%
confidence interval [0.017, 0.078], p = .003). People with a higher level of
education, active employment, and independent living arrangements tended to have
better functional capacity and higher self-esteem. CONCLUSION: Greater functional
capacity predicted higher self-esteem; this effect is probably partly mediated by
education, employment, and living arrangements.
