Disability Description

Disability 2E 2 Edition Written for all kinds of human service practitioners who serve clients with disabilities, this book highlights a strengths-based social model of disability that emphasizes diversity, identity, and empowerment. According to the authors, "Many of the concepts presented in this book are controversial at best, and downright heresy at worst." The first section establishes a nontraditional view of disability that suggests the need for political struggle to end the endemic oppression people with disabilities often face. It looks at development theory in the context of disability, describes moral and medical models, examines disability culture, and overviews past and present legal and civil rights approaches to disability. Chapters in Part II, on disability groupings, such as mobility disabilities and cognitive disabilities, include in-depth narratives written by people living with a disability. Part III, on the human service practice framework, covers assessment, models of practice, and practice guidelines. Chapter summaries and discussion questions are included. The book is for professionals and advanced students in social work, psychology, counseling, and rehabilitation. Mackelprang is director of the Center for Disability Studies And Universal Access at Eastern Washington University. Salsgiver teaches social work and rehabilitation at California State University.
