Parents of Children with Disabilities: Telling a Different Story.
Goddard, Jay A.; Lehr, Ron; Lapadat, Judith C.
Canadian Journal of Counselling, v34 n4 p273-89 Oct 2000
Explores the desconstructive view of disability through an analysis of stories using criteria derived from constructivist principles of narrative therapy. Parents' narratives define and deconstruct the dominant discourse about being the parent of a child with disabilities and reveal insights about the impact of stereotypic views of disability. Discusses ways of honoring the insights of parents in counseling. (Author/JDM)
