  • Product Description

Many individuals with disabilities develop low self-esteem because they regularly encounter a culture that devalues their disabilities. In fact, many resent their disabilities, and reject the idea that their disability is an important part of their identity. In this book, Dr. Cort Schneider utilizes an autoethnographic method of inquiry in order to illustrate his own struggle with his identity as a person with a disability. This book explores his transformation from a person who rejected his disability to a person that now openly embraces it. Dr. Schneider also explores the complex nature of identity development as it relates to those who have disabilities. Chapter One introduces the topic of identity and disability. Chapter Two explains the concept of autoethnography. Chapter Three explains Dr. Schneider's struggle with identity. Chapter Four examines the contradictions that are often present in the process of identity development. Chapter Five explores the impact that relationships can have on one's identity. Chapter Six discusses the role that public discourse plays in issues of identity. Chapter Seven explores the implications of the research that is presented in this book.
