Summary

This updated and expanded new edition continues the theme of the first and second editions of emphasizing that attitudinal barriers create environmental barriers for persons with disabilities. This new edition is improved as a primary introductory text or a supplemental text for student helping professionals with the addition of chapters on employment, understanding ethnic groups, concepts, theories, therapies, and issues for the twenty-first century. Presented in five parts, Part 1, Identifying the Problems, provides a historical view of societal beliefs and treatment of persons with disabilities. Part 2, Empowerment, provides information about efforts that have been made to help persons with disabilities gain and maintain control of their lives. Part 3, Minority View, provides proof that ethnic and racial minorities constitute a significant part of the population of persons with disabilities. Part 4, Psychosocial Concepts and Interventions, augments the reader's understanding of some of the ways persons with disabilities may attempt to cope with their life situation. Part 5, Issues and Conclusions, presents current issues relevant to disabilities and persons with disabilities and offers resolutions that may set a course that culminates in future equality and justice for all. This new edition is further enhanced by providing updated and significantly expanded Appendix resources.
