About This Workshop

This workshop discusses the diversity model of disability and how although disability is included in most definitions of diversity, it is rarely fully integrated into diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. Dr. Andrews will present contemporary trends in disability language and introduce the concept of disability culture. Attendees will learn the difference between psychological adjustment to disability and disability identity development. Pertinent attitudes that affect the lived experience of disabled people will be explored. Clinically relevant suggestions for culturally competent care for persons with disabilities will be offered.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  1. Explain the importance of conceptualizing disability as a diversity variable
  2. List three elements of disability culture
  3. Name two examples of barriers to positive disability identity development
