Description
INDIVIDUAL, SOCIAL, AND CULTURAL EXPERIENCE OF DISABILITY
Course investigates psychological and sociological issues of impairment with regard to viewing disability not as solely located within the individual, but instead as the outcome of interaction between the impaired individual and society. Course focuses on the experience of being disabled, with emphasis on both adjustment to disability and relationship to community. Foundations of stigmatization and discrimination towards people with disabilities and their pervasive ness and effect throughout all domains of life will be examined.
