Grouped around four central themes - illness and impairment, disabling processes, care and control, and communication and representations - this collection offers a fresh perspective on disability research, showing how theory and data can be brought together in new and exciting ways. Disability Research Today starts by showing how engaging with issues around illness and impairment is vital to a multidisciplinary understanding of disability as a social process. The second section explores factors that affect disabled people, such as homelessness, violence and unemployment. The third section turns to social care, and how disabled people are prevented from living with independence and dignity. Finally, the last section examines how different imagery and technology impacts our understandings of disability and deafness. Showcasing empirical work from a range of countries, including Japan, Norway, Italy, Australia, India, the UK, Turkey, Finland and Iceland, this collection shows how disability studies can be simultaneously sophisticated, accessible and policy-relevant. Disability Research Today is suitable for students and researchers in disability studies, sociology, social policy, social work, nursing and health studies."Editor Tom Shakespeare, renowned disability author and activist, introduces the volume as an explicit attempt to "[place] disability studies on a stronger empirical footing"? Disability Research Today?is sure to spark strong interest among scholars hoping to pursue critical realism, while the interdisciplinarity and breadth of scholarship can be expected to appeal to variety of research interests and, even more importantly, to related disability struggles." - Natalie Spagnuolo (York University, Toronto), H-Net Reviews Throughout the text, readers encounter a wide range of topics, from tojisha kenkyu in Japan to inclusive higher education in Italy. Though some contributions are stronger than others, the collection's attention to international policy, experiences, and research leaves readers with a greater understanding of disability's contextuality, complexity, and multidimensionality...Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.'- G. Schlesselman-Tarango, California State University San Bernardino, CHOICE,October 2015

It is an invaluable guide and companion for MSC teachers as well as other professionals who are integrating self-compassion practices in their work."--Rebecca Crane, PhD, Director, Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice, Bangor University, United Kingdom "Our world is crying out for compassion. But compassionate action presupposes self-compassion--an attitude we urgently need to learn, an attitude that can indeed be taught. In this pioneering work, Germer and Neff describe how to teach self-compassion step by step. Professionals who want to introduce self-compassion to their clients to enhance their psychological resilience and emotional well-being will find this book a rich resource."--Brother David Steindl-Rast, cofounder, "Over the past decade, Germer and Neff have spearheaded a revolution that has spread rapidly around the globe.

This book describes the tools and techniques that Germer and Neff have developed to teach MSC. I urge you to learn about this approach and join Germer and Neff in helping people change how they relate to themselves."--Richard C. Schwartz, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School/Cambridge Health Alliance "The innovative approach to self-compassion training pioneered by Neff and Germer is internationally recognized for helping people learn to be kinder to themselves. MSC has set countless people free from the tyranny of hostile self-criticism; consequently, there has been a growing need to understand how to teach the program. Based on years of experience and research, this clearly written, step-by-step book outlines the central features and focus of MSC. It is full of insightful and practical guidance, and will be a source of wisdom for all interested in how to help people bring more compassion to themselves and others."--Paul Gilbert, PhD, FBPsS, OBE, Centre for Compassion Research and Training, University of Derby, United Kingdom "Years of refinement have gone into making MSC the preeminent self-compassion training program, and now its creators have given us a great gift--a text that helps the professional develop an MSC program from the ground up. The book brings us up to speed on the theory and science of self-compassion, guides us through the nuances of teaching it, and presents a detailed session-by-session outline. This well-written resource is essential reading for any helping professional interested in teaching self-compassion."--Russell L. Kolts, PhD, Department of Psychology, Eastern Washington University
