The Psychological and Social Impact of Illness and Disability (5th Edition)
This collection, which defines disability very broadly to include post-traumatic stress and normal aging, includes classic articles and discussion questions as well as new material on illness. With a few exceptions it concentrates on the needs of caregivers and those who seek to rehabilitate people with disabilities. Therefore articles cover such issues as definitions of disability and current or past models, shifts in expectations of care demanded by the disabled, perceptions of stages of adjustment to disability, differences in the experience of men and women, the difficulties in discerning the quality of life from outside disability, sexuality, methods of intervention and treatment to promote acceptance o a disability, family issues surrounding life and death, special resources such as assistive technology and spirituality, new applications of eugenics and euthanasia, and "quality aging." Includes exercises and narratives about disability, primarily by caregivers.
