Summary "This book brings together the study of disability and psychology. It argues that psychology has tended to ignore the socio-cultural aspects of disability and treat disabled people as objects rather than arbiters of psychological intervention. Bringing together disabled and non-disabled researchers and psychologists, this book proposes ideas for an enabling psychological theory and practice." "A key text for students on relevant courses within Disability Studies and Psychology undergraduate and postgraduate courses, this book is also an important resource for those who study or work in the areas of healthcare studies, nursing midwifery, sociology and social work."--Jacket.
