Workshop: Disability as Diversity

June 16, 2022 | 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Pacific
$200 Registration
The live professional training program is presented by Erin Andrews, PsyD, ABPP in partnership with the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP).
In this presentation, Dr. Andrews will discuss the diversity model of disability and how although disability is included in most definitions of diversity, it is rarely fully integrated into diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. Dr. Andrews will present contemporary trends in disability language and introduce the concept of disability culture. Attendees will learn the difference between psychological adjustment to disability and disability identity development. Pertinent attitudes that affect the lived experience of disabled people will be explored. Clinically relevant suggestions for culturally competent care for persons with disabilities will be offered.
