Rehabilitation Philosophy - REHB5060

Year - 2018

This unit discusses the history and philosophy of rehabilitation as a human service. Students examine and analyse the historical and philosophical background of the various approaches to human services and the place occupied by rehabilitation amongst these approaches. They develop knowledge of attitudes to disability, particularly an understanding of how certain movements such as eugenics, social Darwinism, independent living and the Disability Movement have changed and shaped such attitudes. They will also examine how disability has been conceptualised by, and incorporated into, post modern approaches and developed as a human service.
