Race, Culture and Disability: Rehabilitation Science and Practice is a guide to understanding the research and practical issues related to race, culture and disability in rehabilitation services. Due to an increase in ethnically diverse individuals with disabilities, this text is an extremely timely and relevant contribution for researchers, practitioners, and students. 

 

Race, Culture, and Disability brings together the work of leading researchers to explore issues of race, culture, and disability in rehabilitation science and practice. This unique book provides researchers and evidence-based practitioners with scientific resources to answer practical and knowledge-based questions and resolve natural tensions.

Topics such as how to make disability determinations with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and non-English language populations and how to address issues of cultural competence and cultural mistrust in service provision are clearly presented. The book is enriched by the perspectives of the scientists who conduct research, the people of color with disabilities who live in this intersection, the practitioners who work with diverse populations, and the students and recent graduates who have learned and want to learn more about this research area.

  • “In my opinion, Race, Culture, and Disability: Rehabilitation Science and Practice exceeds the editors’ expectations and is an exceptional book for use in graduate-level courses in multi-cultural issues for counselors, and for practitioners desiring to enhance their capabilities in working with culturally diverse clients. The editors bring together theory, research, and practice in providing a comprehensive discussion of the various aspects becoming culturally competent. I find this book, writ ten by note worthy experts in the field, an inclusive and effective approach to this crucial and dynamic subject.”
