Transcript

  • 1. “While your there you can make a difference.” (William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk) Translation: It is our responsibility no matter where we are to be a force for positive change.
  • 2. What Kind of Oppression Are We Talking About? “Ableism, sometimes referred to as 'disableism’ is the systematic oppression of a group of people with disabilities. This form of oppression is manifest in the combination of persona) prejudices, cultural expressions and values, and social forces that marginalize people with disabilities and portray them in a negative light, thus oppressing them.” (Mullaly, 2010 P. 215)
  • 3. An Example of Ableism  My apartment at the U of L  Mobility problems  Attempted solutions
  • 4. “The weak man knows the value of strength, knows the value of power.” (Stanley Tucci as Abraham Erskine) Translation: True power is when we understand and except every part of ourselves
  • 5. The Anti-Oppressive Framework  Anti-Oppressive Practice: From a Personal Level  Focus: Education and Empowerment  Theories: Ability and Structural Social Work
  • 6. Why I Chose This Framework  A lack of communication and understanding between the groups involved. Able-Bodied = Dominant Culture Disabled = Subculture  A tendency to want to over come personal barriers before attempting larger group barriers.  Fragmentation among the different oppressed “disabled” groups in society. Eg. Wheelchair bound, blind, hearing impaired, mentally disabled may view all of their oppressions as different.
  • 7. The Anti-Oppressive Practice In Action  Thmost effective using support group for disabled people.  This would allow for individuals to gain a new perspective and understanding of themselves and as a part of a larger oppressed group in society.  Participating in this group would give the participants a sense of empowerment that could encourage them to move towards political action.
