Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The realities surrounding the psychological experience of disability, plus the intervention techniques used to resolve some of the problems, have changed dramatically since the publication of the first edition of this classic text. This revised edition describes changes that have come out of the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as technological advances, new legislation, and evolving health care systems. It addresses the growing interest in racial and ethnic diversity, and includes an exploration of spirituality and disability, as well as a look at new partnerships, such as within the community, that have developed.

Book News Annotation:

The latest edition, 20 years after the first, incorporates the many changes that have occurred in disability-related language, legislation, technology, and research. Its two sections focus first on the disability experience—a chronicle of what it's like to be disabled and how objective and subjective experiences affect the basic functions of living, working, and playing—and then on interventions—a response to the problems and sources of psychological pain exposed by the discussions in the first section. Vash (a writer and consulting psychologist in Altadena, Calif.) and Crewe (Michigan State U.) see their work as both a textbook or collateral reading source for those studying the psychological aspects of disability, and a general resource for rehabilitation professionals.
