Summary

Ending Disability Discrimination defines disability as a social construction, not an immutable physical limitation, and gives social work students and practitioners a model that can be used to transform how people with disabilities are treated.

Features

  • Uses an innovative model for understanding disability that draws upon a concept familiar to social work students: discrimination (Ch. 5).
  • Presents disability-related impairment as a consequence of discrimination, making the target system the social environment rather than the person with the disability; a view point that shows commitment to social justice and draws upon the systems perspective used for understanding other minority groups.
  • Provides a single source through which to explore the shifting history of scholarly thinking about disability issues by including chapters from respected disability scholars that chronicle and analyze the evolution of the conceptualization of disability (Chs. 1, 2 & 4).
  • Engages students in a critical examination of the "truth" about disability that will enable students and practitioners alike to improve their understanding of and practice in the area of disability.
