As social reality is not a fact, but a construct influenced by a series of factors, both individual (character features, motivations, expectations, perspectives on life) and socio-cultural (norms and values), the human individual has to be regarded as a social being, in a permanent dialogue with himself and the world. We begin with the premise that sick people (no matter the nature of the sickness) feel life in a different way starting with the debut of the disease up to the implications that appear both in the personal and social life of the individual. By definition, the human being must act, and through action he builds and shapes his behavior. For this individual purpose, they have to have a personal strength that refers to the capacity of coming up front in different situations related to the environment and certain personal qualities, qualities which would allow them to act. The psychical representation of the individual’s personal strength is the self consciousness, which includes his awareness of his own value and self-esteem. The social model changes the concentration of the attention from certain individuals’ physical limitations to the “society that handicaps the persons who have different physical deficiencies, by imposing them some unrealistic expectations”. Considering the importance of the psychical life, the way in which the spirit influences the material, we can say that the sick person’s recovery is influenced by the way in which they perceive their own disease, their character, as well as their energetic potential.
