Reeve, D. (2006) ‘Towards a psychology of disability: The emotional effects of living in a disabling society’, in D. Goodley and R. Lawthom (eds) Disability and Psychology: Critical Introductions and Reflections, London: Palgrave, pp. 94-107.
This book chapter is my first publication which looked at how psycho-emotional disablism (referred to as psycho-emotional dimensions of disability) could impact on emotional well-being. It gives some useful examples of the different forms that psycho-emotional disablism can take and suggests that therapy/psychology need to be more aware of this ‘inner’ form of disablism, especially when it occurs as internalised oppression.
