Beyond Disability by Gerald Hales
Book DescriptionThis important text draws together a wealth of experience to present theoretical and practical insights into the way society intervenes in the lives of disabled people, and considers how resources could be used in ways that are more helpful and supportive. Stressing the social contexts within which disabilities become apparent, the contributors highlight two key points: disabled people have practical difficulties only in the area of life affected by their disability and in other respects are no different from anyone else; and they are handicapped not by the parameters of their disability but by the demands and attitudes of society. The contributors consider the position of people with specific types of disability, explore both sides of the 'care' and 'counselling' equation, and discuss training, legislation and aspects of management and attitudes among professionals. Beyond Disability has been developed as a Course Reader for the Open University course The Disabling Society (K255).
