The SAGE Reference Series on Disability, from Gary L Albrecht - editor of Handbook of Disability Studies (2003) and Encyclopedia of Disability (2005) - is a cross-disciplinary and issues-based series which incorporates links from varied fields making up disability studies. Including eight volumes, each examines topics central to the lives of individuals with disabilities and their families. With a balance of history, theory, research, and application, specialists set out the findings and implications of research and practice for others whose current or future work involves the care and/or study of those with disabilities, as well as for the disabled themselves. The presentational style (concise and engaging) emphasizes accessibility. Taken individually, each volume sets out the fundamentals of the topic it addresses, accompanied by compiled data and statistics, recommended further readings, a guide to organizations and associations, and other annotated resources, thus providing the ideal introductory platform and gateway for further study. Taken together, the series represents both a survey of major disability issues and a guide to new directions and trends and contemporary resources in the field as a whole. The series includes the following volumes: - Ethics, Law and Policy - Arts and Humanities - Employment and Work - Education - Disability Through the Life Course - Health and Medicine - Assistive Technology and Science - Rehabilitation Interventions

Welfare policies and the ideas of well-being are linked with the ideas of good life. However, the meaning of good life, i.e. what is considered as ‘good life’ gets its meanings contextually. This means that we need to study the ideas of good life in time. The ideas of good life express social and political values and they are articulated in particular terms in particular time and place. The changing ideas of welfare and the ideas of changing approaches on welfare, well-being and knowledge production related to them have been discussed widely in international and Finnish research contexts. This volume is the second – and last – part of publications which stem from the 20th Anniversary Seminar of the Research Unit on Disability at University of Eastern Finland. It offers a multivoiced collection of research discussions from research in the fields of welfare and inclusion.

This collection of original essays, from both established scholars and newcomers, takes up a debate that has recently flared up in philosophy, sociology, and disability studies on whether disability is intrinsically a harm that lowers a person's quality of life. While this is a new question in disability scholarship, it is also touches on one of the oldest philosophical questions: What is the good human life? Historically, philosophers have not been interested in the topic of disability, and when they are it is usually only in relation to questions such as euthanasia, abortion, or the moral status of disabled people. Consequently, implicitly or explicitly, disability has been either ignored by moral and political philosophers or simply equated with a bad human life, a life not worth living. This collection takes up the challenge that disability poses to basic questions of political philosophy and bioethics, among others, by focusing on fundamental issues as well as practical implications of the relationship between disability and the good human life.

Die Internationale Klassifikation der Funktionsfähigkeit, Behinderung und Gesundheit (ICF) der WHO ist das weltweit anerkannte Rahmenkonzept für das Verständnis und die Dokumentation von Funktionsfähigkeit und Behinderung. Um die ICF in der klinischen Praxis leichter anwendbar zu machen, wurden die ICF Core Sets entwickelt. Sie erleichtern die Beschreibung der Funktionsfähigkeit, indem sie für bestimmte Gesundheitsstörungen (wie z.B. muskuloskeletale Erkrankungen, Schlaganfall, Rückenmarksverletzungen oder ischämische Herzerkrankungen) Listen der für diese Gesundheitsstörungen relevanten ICF-Kategorien zur Verfügung stellen. ICF Core Sets können in einer Vielzahl von Fachgebieten und Einrichtungen angewendet werden und damit zur Qualitätssicherung beitragen. Dieses Handbuch: - führt ein in die Konzepte von Funktionsfähigkeit und Behinderung, die mit der ICF zur Verfügung stehen - beschreibt die Entwicklung und Anwendungsbereiche der ICF Core Sets - erklärt Schritt für Schritt den Einsatz der ICF Core Sets in der klinischen Praxis - enthält alle 31 ICF Core Sets sowie zugehörigen Dokumentationsformulare (mehr als 1400 Seiten in ausdruckbaren pdf-Dateien) auf der beiliegenden CD-ROM. Die Leser dieses Buches erhalten notwendige und praxisorientierte Informationen, welche die sofortige Anwendung der ICF Core Sets in der Praxis ermöglichen. Dieses Handbuch kann von den unterschiedlichsten Fachleuten der Gesundheitsberufe benutzt werden und unterstützt ebenso Lehrer und Studenten in der Lehre und Anwendung der ICF.
