Engaging in Change at a Personal Level - the Importance of Learning to be Affected

Anthony HOGAN

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter


The material in the previous chapters has brought forward several key insights. Without doubt, applied clinical approaches to addressing some of the interactive social aspects of hearing services have been around for quite some time. But at the same time, the efficacy of these approaches has been limited because takenfor-granted assumptions about disability have not been examined and because key conceptual and practical insights arising in sociology and social psychology have not been integrated into service design. Chapter 2 brought forward the insight that hearing is related to social identity and that adaptation to living with hearing disability involves an identity change process for both individuals and members of their family and social network
