Social Relationships and Social Participation of Women with Disability

Author(s): Eleni Koutsogeorgou

Book Description

This book provides insights into the experiences of women with physical, mental or sensory disability in terms of their social relationships and social participation, as well as the barriers and facilitators of their physical and social environments in that respect. It will be of interest to academics, health professionals, researchers, and other experts in the field, in addition to persons with disabilities who are exploring ways to overcome barriers they might be facing in terms of social participation. The book includes perspectives of women with disability on social relationships and social participation, as well as an extensive exploration of the current scientific literature. The points made here will contribute to the discussion around the full integration of persons with disabilities, by removing barriers to their social participation and autonomy, together with the strengthening of their social relationships and the social support they receive.
