Psychology Of Disability: Second Edition (Springer Series On Rehabilitation)
Psychology of Disability: Second Edition (Springer Series on Rehabilitation)
The realities surrounding the psychological experience of disability, plus the intervention techniques used to resolve some of the problems, have changed dramatically since the publication of the first edition of this classic text. This revised edition describes changes that have come out of the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as technological advances, new legislation, and evolving health care systems. It addresses the growing interest in racial and ethnic diversity, and includes an exploration of spirituality and disability, as well as a look at new partnerships, such as within the community, that have developed.
"Destined to become an instant classic. These renowned clinicians/authors offer a dizzying array of contemporary, disability-based topics written in an entertaining, practical, concise, jargon-free style. They offer innumerable clinical vignettes to underscore their message....This book is a must read for both the fledgling student and the veteran rehabilitation professional. One only stands to gain by reading this most comprehensive resource."
