Enriching Social Work through Interdisciplinary Disability Studies
Carter, Irene; Quaglia, Christine; Leslie, Donald
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v3 p124-130 2010
This paper recommends that faculties of Social Work incorporate Disability Studies in their curriculum by embracing its interdisciplinary deconstructionist perspective. Disability Studies encourages Social Work to move beyond person-in--the-environment and anti-oppressive approaches to find more effective ways of removing barriers for persons with disabilities, and new opportunities to include them in the larger culture. Discussing the critical nature of Disability Studies, the authors point out how Social Work is learning to embrace the interdisciplinary nature of Disability Studies.
