This requires philosophical shift in the way we view disability (medical model) to one that is in line with the core values of social work (disability justice model). Through discussion, group activities, personal stories, and a short video, we will explore this philosophical shift, identify ways social workers can help people with disabilities develop a sense of pride, and learn how we can make our own practices and environments more inclusive of people with disabilities.
