Handbook of Applied Disability and Rehabilitation Research Summary


Handbook of Applied Disability and Rehabilitation Research by Kristofer J. Hagglund

Now, more than ever, the field of rehabilitation psychology is growing. Research programs are focusing on involving consumer participation from communities and society at large. Interventions are now designed to make fundamental changes so that all people - regardless of sensory, physical, or cognitive capacity - can fully participate. In addition, the field has begun to address central concerns in health care delivery and health policy. This book - one of the few that focuses solely on rehabilitation psychology research - provides recommendations for future research programs, policy changes, and clinical interventions from the various perspectives within rehabilitation psychology research and practice, and demonstrates how much the field can evolve with the implementation of these changes. Topics covered include: assistive technology; cultural diversity; community integration; future of rehabilitation research; health policy; employment; and health disparities.
