Disability is the one contextual variable that intersects all other diversity components. While the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) was signed into law in 1990, the field of psychology continues to operate in an oppressive manner. This dynamic and experiential workshop will lead participants in structured learning and interactive activities to empower the field of counseling to shift methods of research, education, training, and practice as they relate to the contextual variable of disability. Case vignettes, film strips, and current evidence-based practice guidelines will also be integrated throughout the presentation.

Learning Objectives:

1. Provide a historical context of disability and the field of counseling.

2. Describe how counseling theories, diagnosis, and treatment can lead to continued stigmatization and oppression for people with disabilities.

3. Review the models of disability and how they intersect with treatment.

4. Introduce the fundamental principles of disability affirmative therapy.

5. Dissect and practice the implementation of assessment and treatment guidelines for people with disabilities.
