Valuing Lives: Wolf Wolfensberger and the Principle of Normalization

This article in the Winter 2017 issue of Making a Difference (published by the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities) includes an article by Dr. Pat Nobbie entitled ‘The rhythms and patterns of life.’ The article begins on page 27. Dr. Nobbie poses the question “What makes a good portrayal of people with disabilities in the media, or a good portrayal of people of any diverse characteristics for that matter?” In examining this question, the author references the video Valuing Lives: Wolf Wolfensberger and the Principle of Normalization.

Note: on 23 February 2017, from 5 to 7 pm, the McGoogan Library of Medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (US) will host a viewing of the documentary, followed by a panel discussion. For those in the area, I highly recommend it.
