This seminar will focus on the considerations mental health professionals must include in their work with individuals with a physical disability; the considerations represent the salient issues that disabled individuals face on a daily basis that further impact their successful navigation of the environment. The seminar will explore the processes of physical and psychological accessibility, the dynamics of difference represented by racism-, discrimination-, and prejudice-related stress, and the relationship between mind and body represented in chronic illness. In addition, there will be an exploration of the politicization of disability with a focus on the interplay between governmental demands and everyday needs. This seminar is didactic, focusing on defining salient disability issues that mental health professionals must be aware of as they may arise in a clinical setting, and experiential, having participants engage as “helpers” and as “disabled individuals” (with the use of limited physicality techniques).
