2020 APSE Virtual Conference – Lifeworks Presentation

It’s Not You, It’s Me: Breaking up with Outdated Beliefs through the Social Model & Disability Rights
Less than a century ago in the United States, institutionalization and forced sterilization of people with disabilities were commonplace—even encouraged. Drastic changes in society’s approach to people with disabilities are paralleled by evolving theoretical ‘models’ of how society thinks about disability. Join us for an in-depth discussion on the transformative capacity of the social model and disability rights to teach us about our past and to ground our future work in supporting employment first.
