Disability as an Identity: Disability Cultural Centers in Counselor Education


Mar 31, 2019 9:00am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 9:30am


Credits: None available.

Description

A disability cultural center (DCC), is designated as a cultural space to explore and celebrate disability identity and community. The rise of DCCs represents an important shift away from disability as something medical to be fixed or cured. Providing a counternarrative to challenge widespread disempowering views on disability, this poster highlights the potential role of a DCC as a university resource for training counseling students to understand the social construction of disability as a social identity.

  • To  identify the role of disability cultural centers in higher education.
  • To  recognize and investigate structures, and discourse which support and promote inclusive practices.
  • To explore how scholars (rehabilitation counselors, researchers, professors, etc.)  can act as allies to those in marginalized positions and participate in the shift to reframe disability.
