HLTD07H3 Advanced Rehabilitation Sciences: Disability Studies and Lived Experiences of 'Normalcy'

This course builds on HLTC17H3 by examining rehabilitation from the perspectives of researchers, clinicians, and clients. The course focuses on the historical role of rehabilitation, not only in improving health, but also in perpetuating the goal of 'normalcy'. Students will examine how rehabilitation impacts people, both at an individual and societal level, and explore the field of disability studies and its critical engagement with the message that disabled people “need to be repaired.”
