Mvaese Groom Social works commitment to diversity has been manifest in the ways that the profession has embraced diverse, underrepresented groups. The profession started out primarily with middle class Caucasians serving economically disadvantaged and ethnically diverse groups. Very quickly, the profession brought people from these diverse groups into the professional fold to serve people (ions groups from which they come and to enhance the profession. Soonl work has embraced margin-alized people and groups such as women, people from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, and gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered persons as full parti-cipants in the profession. When disabled people are similarly embraced as students, colleagues, and even supervisors, social work will be enriched by our contributions and life pspeetives. The primary problems facing disables] people today are problems related to social justice and not to individual pathology. Socially just social work pracdce with individuals, groups and families entails the following dimensions. I. Removing barriers to housing, employment, education, health care, recreation, em. will reduce the societal burden of disability no more effectively than char-Ity and institutionalization. 2. Disabled people should be assumed as competent and as exports over their own lives. Too often, society treats disabled people as though they are incapable. Self-determination is a cardinal social justice matter and should be wrested from disabled persons only M the most dire of circumstances. 3. Social and economic service systems should be based on investing in disabled people and not in providing them with charity service. 4. Disabled people have the same rights and societal worth as noudisabled people. Just like nondisabled people, disabled individuals are interdependent on others. And whde some physkally disabled people may not be physically independent, they do have the right of self-determination to direct their personal care. Similarly, individuals with intellectual disabilities may not be able to fully manage their finances but they can choose who helps them with their finances and they have the right to maximal selkietermination. 5. Disabkd people have the right to live in the community and not M insthu-eons. Nursing facilhies house many disabled per.as because less exprcsirc resources are unavailable in communities. In the US., prisons and jails are a primary mechanism of social control over tip to 300,000 people with mental health dnabdities. This, in large measure, is a result of inadequate community resources (Human Rights Watch, 2003). 6. Self-control and social justice will be promoted as organizations that follow the social model, such as centers for independent living, are sup-ported and legions zed. Professional organ kations such as WASW should partner with disability rights based organ.ations to promote rights based approaches. 7. Social policies and orgrckational policies should promote the roles of people with disabilities as experts, advocates, and role models.
