I agree...but with all respect to your profession the ability to deal with
labelling and stereotypes is very hard going for the disabled and
chronically ill person to deal with on their own - even with counselling
help because of the lack of social, community and general knowledge of the
public to see such experiences in a social and poltical rather than an
individual light - this is something that is much easier for racial and
feminist issues with much more support out there from family and friends and
a respected and understood politics to race and feminism

The way i see it is that the need for the psychological is often the result
of negative social and environmental problems - so change those and there is
less need for therapy - If  counselling support is necessary let it be
framed like you said within a  social context while respecting the
individual personality and desires but be aware of the limitations of it...
All the best
Glenn

HI, I agree with these comments, however as a trainee counselling
psychologist I feel the psychological aspect cannot be put aside all
together. I do not for a moment think people labelled disabled or
chronically ill need therapy to 'adjust' or whatever  but I do feel that if
a psychologist or therapist  is seeing a client who has been labelled in
such a way they need to be informed about how to deal with it in order to
stop stereotypes and presumptions continuing. Thus I feel we can't afford to
reduce it down only to a social issue. Sarah.
