Social Work and Disability offers a contemporary and critical exploration of social work practice with people with physical and sensory impairments, an area that has previously been marginalized within both practice and academic literature. It explores how social work practice can, and indeed does, contribute to the promotion of disabled people’s rights and the securing of positive outcomes in their lives. The book begins by exploring the ways in which disability is understood and how this informs policy and practice. Opening with a thought-provoking account of the lived experience of a disabled person using social work services, it goes on to critically analyse theory, policy and contemporary legislative change. Inequality, oppression and diversity are the focus of the second section of the book, while the remainder offers an in-depth exploration of the social work practice issues in disability settings, notably work with children, adults and safeguarding. Service-user and carer perspectives, case profiles, reflective activities and suggestions for further reading are included throughout. Social Work and Disability will be essential reading for social work students and practitioners. It will also be of interest to service users and carers, students on health and social care courses, third-sector practitioners and advocates.

Handbook of Vocational Rehabilitation and Disability Evaluation

Application and Implementation of the ICF

This book presents the state of the art in the application and implementation of the WHO's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) in the areas of vocational rehabilitation as a primary topic and disability evaluation as a secondary topic. Application of the ICF and implementation strategies toward a holistic and comprehensive approach to work disability and vocational rehabilitation programs are presented along with clinical cases and exercises. The ICF as a topic in health and disability has been gaining momentum since its approval by the World Health Assembly in 2001, and great progress has been made since then. However, the integration if the ICF in the realm of vocational rehabilitation has been lacking despite the fact that work and employment are a major area in people's lives, particularly those who have work disability. This book will advance the professional practice of vocational rehabilitation, rehabilitation counseling, occupational medicine, and allied health science.

Work and the Welfare State

Work and the Welfare State places street-level organizations at the analytic center of welfare-state politics, policy, and management. This volume offers a critical examination of efforts to change the welfare state to a workfare state by looking at on-the-ground issues in six countries: the US, UK, Australia, Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands. An international group of scholars contribute organizational studies that shed new light on old debates about policies of workfare and activation. Peeling back the political rhetoric and technical policy jargon, these studies investigate what really goes on in the name of workfare and activation policies and what that means for the poor, unemployed, and marginalized populations subject to these policies. By adopting a street-level approach to welfare state research, Work and the Welfare State reveals the critical, yet largely hidden, role of governance and management reforms in the evolution of the global workfare project. It shows how these reforms have altered organizational arrangements and practices to emphasize workfare’s harsher regulatory features and undermine its potentially enabling ones. As a major contribution to expanding the conceptualization of how organizations matter to policy and political transformation, this book will be of special interest to all public management and public policy scholars and students.

Sheila H. Akabas and Paul A. Kurzman present a comprehensive look at the ways in which management, labor organizations, government, and the social work profession can better respond to the needs of workers and their families and communities. Focusing on the social, psychological, and economic conditions of the workplace, this volume addresses the domino impact of unemployment; the inadequacy of insurance, benefit, and support systems; barriers to entering the workforce; the conflict between work and family obligations; the sometimes unsupportive nature of many jobs and settings; and the difficulties faced by people with chronic or acute illnesses. In conclusion, the authors assess current trends and consider the future possibilities of career counseling, pre-retirement preparation, disability management, executive coaching, manpower programming, and managed care. Case studies and study questions accompany each chapter.

Will the present high work pace and the strong time pressure continue to exist in the coming 20 years? In the year 2010 will there be even more employees working under their level of education and suffering from health problems due to stress at work than is the case at the moment? Will the physical workload of employees be reduced to a minimum over the next 20 years as a result of further application of ergonomic principles? Will the health risks due to working with chemicals increase or decrease? And will sickness absenteeism and work disability have increased, as a result of these kinds of developments, around the year 2010 or will they have been mostly brought under control?These and similar questions are dealt with in this book about the quality of the work, health and wellbeing of employees in the year 2010, carried out by the TNO Institute of Preventive Health Care (NIPG/TNO) in Leiden, assisted by the Scenario Committee.Using trend analysis the researchers demonstrate that many aspects of working life have improved in the Netherlands in the last 15 years. Needless to say, not the past but the exploration of the future of the quality of working life takes a central place in this book. Finally the top 20 measures are presented, aimed at halving the rate of sickness absenteeism and work disability in the Netherlands, suggested by the panel of 88 Dutch experts.
