Partner-Related Rehabilitation Experiences of Lesbians with Physical Disabilities: A Qualitative Study
Hunt, Brandon; Milsom, Amy; Matthews, Connie R.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v52 n3 p167-178 2009
The authors interviewed 25 lesbians with physical disabilities about their perspectives on their partner-related experiences. Using phenomenological inquiry, they identified two themes: one, how the disability affected the partnership and, two, treatment as a lesbian couple by rehabilitation professionals. The themes and subthemes are described in detail, and implications for rehabilitation counselors are presented. (Contains 1 table.)
