Course Description: 

This course will provide an introduction, through the lens of disability culture, to clinical considerations when working with people with disabilities and their families in assessment and treatment.  We will explore what disability culture includes, multiple models through which disability is viewed and their implications for health service providers, common experiences of people with disabilities and their families, and the intersection of disability with other identities.   We will discuss how these issues arise in the provision of psychological services, and how the way in which in the therapist holds these experiences influences client well being and success.  We will utilize a combination of lecture, clinical case examples, and discussion as our primary teaching methods.
