Unpacking and Reframing Dis/ability: Critical Consciousness Raising to Incorporate a Critical Response into Clinical Practice
People with disabilities have a long history of oppression, segregation, and discrimination rooted in ableism/disablism—attitudes and beliefs that left unexamined continue to be perpetuated in the practices of people and institutions throughout our society.
- Ableism: Discrimination in favor of non-disabled people.
- Disablism: Discrimination against people with disabilities
- Ableism/Disablism: Two sides of the same coin.
- Know the meaning of and interconnection between ableism and disablism.
- Know the disempowering, empowering, and transformative models of disability and how such models connect to perpetuating or dismantling ableism/disablism.
- Begin to develop a critical consciousness to unpack and reframe one’s own disempowering biases, attitudes, and practices with people with disabilities, across disability and intersecting identities, in order to incorporate a critical response to one’s clinical practice.
