Taught By: Georgia Tania Karalioliou
Section: A

CRN: 3800

Credits: 3

Disability is part of human diversity. Yet, disability is often excluded within the discipline of psychology and, when addressed, it is typically within the context of psychopathology. The goal of this course is to introduce students to a depathologizing and intersectional approach to disability, from a psychological, but also an interdisciplinary perspective. The course content will include the following: Familiarization with disability terms, issues, and culture; Exploring beliefs and thoughts around disability; Understanding the impact of intersecting identities and social context in disability; Modes of inclusion and the interaction of disability justice with psychological research and practice; Applications of disability justice in psychology and beyond. While designed for those majoring in psychology within the Bachelor’s Program for Adults and Transfer Students (in The Schools of Public Engagement), this course is open to other students who are interested in the critical examination of disability within psychology and society.
