Author:
FAWCETT Barbara
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Social Work, 28(2), April 1998, pp.263-277.
Publisher:

Argues that poststructural and postmodern perspectives have something useful to offer social work, provided these orientations are informed by the 'social critical power of feminism'. A case study is used to consider the utility of applying feminist poststructural and postmodern perspectives. It is contended that these orientations not only serve to link practice to theory in a different way and to open up new avenues for exploration, but can also be seen to make a contribution to the current debate about the current constitution of social work.

Social work education and disability: benefiting from the impact of the ADA

Author:
QUINN Peggy
Journal article citation:
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, 12(1/2), 1995, pp.55-71.
Publisher:

Place of publication:
Philadelphia, USA

This article looks at the effect the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 has had on social work education. Social work has a long history in the areas of rehabilitation and work with people with disabilities, at least as far as medical social work is concerned. During the 1960s, funding and opportunities in the area of disability and rehabilitation provided opportunities for an increased involvement of social workers. In the last two decades however, social work has virtually relinquished its place to rehabilitation professionals, counsellors and the medical profession. Education and research have not focussed on these areas. A 1992 survey of graduate schools of social work revealed that, even with the impetus of the ADA, few schools have content on disability and rehabilitation. As a step toward upgrading curriculum content, some sources of information and some resources for curriculum enhancement are described.

Adjustment to disability

Authors:
COHEN Carol B, NAPOLITANO Donna
Journal article citation:
Journal of Social Work in Disability and Rehabilitation, 6(1/2), 2007, pp.135-155.
Publisher:

Place of publication:
Philadelphia, USA

Two case examples are used to illustrate the adaptations and life choices that are needed to meet the psychological, social and developmental needs of people who become disabled, and to enhance their self-esteem. The first focuses on a 50 year-old woman who had been profoundly deaf since the age of two, and was unable to lip read. Although succeeding in life, marrying and having children, she had ongoing psychological problems that dated back to her mother’s denial of her disability. The second case focuses on a middle-aged woman rendered quadriplegic by a spinal cord injury in her late teens. Her experiences focus on personal humiliation and stereotyping, discrimination in education and employment, the financial costs involved in remaining independent and the practical difficulties of getting reliable help. Both adjustment stories highlight the importance of integrating an ecological or systems framework that emphasises the inter-relationships between biological, psychological, social, technological, cultural and political factors.
