Product Overview

This book is a guide to understanding the important issue of stigma ? ?disability by association? ? and how it affects not only those who find themselves excluded from society, whether through the public's perception of disability or mental illness, but also family members and friends. Social Work and Disadvantage explains the danger of stigmatization and its consequences for the individuals and for society as a whole. Contributors provide evidence from research and professional practice on transferability of health and social problems in, for example, dementia care patients, drug users, young offenders and looked after children. Providing key messages for practice, they outline a range of protection measures against ?disability by association? to reduce the risk of stigma and victimization. Social Work and Disadvantage provides valuable pointers for social work and health care practitioners, and for educators and students in the fields.
