artifact description
This study examines the self-concept (i.e., self-efficacy, public self-consciousness, and self-esteem) of veterans as they are the underserved but important group to understand and help. Also, clothing is one of the most immediate needs of individuals and is a therapeutic tool to understand and improve individual’s self-concept and behavior (Damhorst et al., 2005). Therefore, this study investigates how clothing choices are related to veteran’s self-concept and life satisfaction.
