Rehabilitation Services as Ideology

The basic purpose of ideology is to dominate. The ideology of rehabilitation dominates clients by obscuring contradictions between professionals’ and clients’ interests, by representing its procedures as in the best interests of clients though they are frequently not, and by ignoring the sociopolitical dimensions of disability and implicitly defending the status quo. Leaders of disabled people are becoming aware of how the disabled are disadvantaged by that ideology. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Rehabilitation Psychology PsycARTICLES®

Leaders of disabled people are becoming aware of how the disabled are disadvantaged by that ideology.
