Insights - Making the Invisible Visible in Education and Practice

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Challenging social constructs, barriers and blockages to social inclusion, social cohesion, social justice, respect for diversity and human rights experienced by people living with disabilities is essential social work. This chapter presents through an auto-ethnographic investigation a critical reflection into society’s norms about deserving or undeserving – using the example of hidden disability. The chapter questions the current societal acknowledgement and perceptions of hidden disability and focuses on the constructs of 'you must see a disability to have it' or 'I walk and talk therefore I must be OK'. Critical thinking, personal experience and theoretically informed social work practice underpin this exploration.
