Using face-to-face learning experiences combined with community-based experience, the course provides unique opportunities to learn about the disablement process and both the individual and systemic factors that explain disability and disadvantage. This course surveys international perspectives on the disablement process and with a disability-human rights perspective. Interventions, physical and psychological, to redress disability and disadvantage problems and issues are also canvassed. The significance of adopting a multi-disciplinary team approach to successful disability management is highlighted as is the importance of inter-professional learning. The nature of specific services provided and the ways in which clients of rehabilitation are managed through the rehabilitation process are covered. Students consider vocational and avocational rehabilitation and community re-entry aspects of disability and disadvantage.
