video of speech by Dr. Burton Blatt

Thanks to Guy Caruso for sending me notice of this link to the text and video of a speech given by Dr. Burton Blatt in 1984 in Pittsburgh. It is 6 parts, so you have to click on each one. Dr. Blatt was the author of the well-known Christmas in Purgatory. See this site for more about Blatt. Dr. Blatt recruited Wolf Wolfensberger to come to Syracuse University. Thanks also to the Minnesota Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities for making available this important video as well as another video by Dr. Wolfensberger on the same website.

    Thanks for posting this Marc!
    For anyone wondering, these are well worth watching. His humour surprised me in some parts, but he was always grounded in the seriousness of his presentation.
    Still enlightening 26 years later!
