Abstract

The concept of the lost pleasure of life is explored from both psychological and forensic perspectives. An instrument (Lost Pleasure of Life Scale) useful for assessing such loss in individual cases involving physical injuryis discussed. The use of Havighurst's developmental model is suggested as a way to conceptualize the future impact of disabilities, and particular attention is given to the expected sequelae of sustained unemployment. Vocational rehabilitation is important not only from an economic point of view but also as a way to reverse some of the loss of pleasure of life. Finally, ahistory of the development and current status of the concept is presented along with discussion of the merits of expert psychological testimony in cases claiming hedonic loss.
