Authors:
LIGHTFOOT Elizabeth, WILLIAMS Oliver
Journal article citation:
Journal of Aggression Maltreatment and Trauma, 18(2), March 2009, pp.133-152.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis

Data from two national focus groups of 19 key informants (service providers and advocates) are used to explore issues faced by people with physical and sensory disabilities (primarily deafness) in accessing domestic violence services, with particular emphasis on those from minority ethnic groups. The study also looks at the preferences of people of colour when accessing such services, and assesses the cultural competence, disability awareness and domestic violence awareness of domestic violence service providers and disability organisations.

Locating deaf people, gesture and sign in African histories, 1450s-1950s

Author:
MILES M.

Publisher:
Taylor and Francis,

Construction of valued identities and evidence-based cultural histories is not easy for deaf or disabled people across Africa. This paper locates some deaf people, gesture and formal Sign Language in African histories, to illustrate possible sources and encourage local, national and pan-African compilation of materials. Documentary evidence of deaf individuals or groups is indicated from 25 nations, sourced in travellers' accounts, legal and genealogical records, government reports, institutional and missionary archives, linguistic studies, folklore, novels, religious narrative, mime and dance. Interpretations and uses of the materials remain for deaf people in Africa to decide according to their own various interests and objectives.

Violence in deaf and hard-of-hearing people: a review of the literature

Authors:
VERNON McKay, GREENBERG Sheldon
Journal article citation:
Aggression and Violent Behavior, 4(3), 1999, pp.259-272.
Publisher:
Elsevier

The few available studies on the relationship of hearing loss to violence indicate that the prevalence of brain damage, learning disability, communication disorders, educational retardation, unemployment and underemployment in the deaf and hard-of-hearing population creates frustration which tends to manifest in disproportionate aggression, violence and hostility. Relative to prevalence, hearing impaired people are overly represented in the prison population, which is the major datum the literature on violence and hearing loss yields. Discusses reasons for the lack of literature on hearing loss and violence and suggests ways to remedy the problem.
