The identities and social roles of people with intellectual disabilities: Challenging dominant cultural worldviews, values and mythologies
MetadataShow full item record

Informed by a contextualist perspective, this research was conducted within a participatory framework. Causal layered analysis was used to deconstruct the data revealing a complex dynamic of worldviews and mythologies which served to dehumanise people with intellectual disabilities and blame them for their own fate (victim blaming).
