Social Influences in Rehabilitation Planning: Blueprint for the 21st Century. A Report of the Mary E. Switzer Memorial Seminar (9th, New York, NY, November, 1984).
Perlman, Leonard G., Ed.; Austin, Gary F., Ed.
The monograph resulted from the Switzer Memorial Seminar which brought together 20 persons recognized for their achievements in rehabilitation. Five action papers formed the foundation for the program: "Social Influences on Rehabilitation: Introductory Remarks" (E. Berkowitz); "Trends and Demographic Studies on Programs for Disabled Persons" (L. Haber); "The Politics of Disability: Future Trends as Shaped by Current Realities" (W. Roth); "Changing Perception of Disability and the Future of Rehabilitation" (H. Hahn); "Ethical Considerations Facing Society in Rehabilitating Severely Disabled Persons" (J. Noble). Each of the action papers is followed by excerpts of reviews and comments made by participants. A summary of recommendations related to the topic of chapter five is given at the end of the document following six brief special papers: "The Competitive Marketplace: A Partnership with the Rehabilitation Community is Needed Now More Than Ever" (A. Colby); "Economics, Rehabilitation and the Post-Industrial Society" (R. Ehrle); "Some Thoughts on Independence" (M. Nosek); "A Response to the 'Changing Perception of Disability and the Future of Rehabilitation'" (L. McConnell); "The Emerging Role of Disabled Hispanics" (A. Suazo). (CL)
