Perspectives on disability and rehabilitation: contesting assumptions; challenging practice

Author:
HAMMELL Karen Whalley
Publisher:
Churchill Livingstone
Publication year:
2006
Pagination:
258p., bibliog.
Place of publication:
Edinburgh

This book seeks to guide professionals and academics from disciplines that rely upon the presence of disability in society such as nursing, occupational health and physiotherapy, through the recent explosion of publications from theorists in the humanities and social sciences, and from cultural, feminist, race, queer and disability theorists, which have contested the way in which disability is understood and managed. The author asks rehabilitation practitioners to question whether their professional assumptions are either benevolent or right and aims to stimulate a more critical approach to both the “problem” of physical difference and disability and the nature of rehabilitation following illness or injury. Relating eclectic theoretical viewpoints to practical examples throughout, this book questions the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) definition of disability, highlights the consequences of being classified as deviant from valued norms and the role that traditional rehabilitation methods may play in the perpetuation of injustice. With chapters on issues central to rehabilitation, such as the nature of the body and its physical impairment and the ideas of independence, privilege and power within more client-centred philosophies, the author seeks to update and improve the education, practice, service delivery, research and theoretical development of the rehabilitation professions.

Russian government policy is to organise services for disabled people, but these intentions are not enough. Implementation depends on organisational, financial and legal aspects. It is possible to change the present system of assistance now. For this purpose it is necessary to create a uniform information environment for and about disabled people. The authors present a clear and constructive program for practical realisation of an information system in one social sphere - rehabilitation of disabled people.

Discusses how cerebrovascular disease (CVD) is a common cause of death and perhaps the first cause of disability in adults in Hong Kong. CVD inevitably takes its toll on the patients and their family members and the slow and difficult rehabilitation period can be a very disempowering experience. This article aims to report the effectiveness of using self-help/mutual help groups as a means to overcome powerlessness of the stroke victims.

Re-authorization of the Rehabilitation Act: comprehensive solutions or political sacrificing?

Author:
O'DAY Bonnie
Journal article citation:
Disability and Society, 11(3), September 1996, pp.411-427.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis,

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is widely hailed as a sweeping piece of civil rights legislation that will dramatically affect the lives of individuals with disabilities in the United States for generations. In contrast, the re-authorisation of the Rehabilitation Act in 1992, and attempts to consolidate the rehabilitation programme for people with disabilities into a generic, consolidated employment system for the general public in 1995 brought only modest reforms. Using dominant political theories about policy making and agenda setting asks how comprehensive reforms get on the United State political agenda and looks at what factors were present during passage of ADA that were not present during re-authorisation of the Rehabilitation Act. Conclusions are drawn that will assist advocates in other countries in passing comprehensive civil rights legislation.

There is clear indication for extensive measurements to be taken to enhance the consciousness of social workers with regard to the extension of roles and tasks.
