The Dream of Inclusion for All

Cover The Dream of Inclusion for All

Enablement Publisher’s first book, “The Dream of Inclusion for All”, has been well received for training purposes in Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR). More than 20 partners of Enablement contributed stories of real-life situations related to disability in Africa, Latin America and Asia. These stories have been modified into powerful training materials in Community Based Rehabilitation; all with different methodologies for adult education. Following the domains of the WHO CBR Guidelines, 27 chapters are compiled for use in training settings for fieldworkers and managers at basic and advanced levels.

Real life case stories

The title of the book is derived from the preface by David Werner: “If our aim is inclusion – for the disabled child/person and for all who are marginalized or not given a fair chance – we must unite behind a collective radical dream: The Dream of Inclusion for All”. All stories illustrate the need to adapt solutions to the local environment. Each narrative is followed by assignments for adult education, such as debate, role-plays and suggested activities for the group exploration of “questions that can not be answered from behind a desktop”. The book is extensively illustrated with photographs and cartoons. A DVD is included with all chapters in Word- and PDF-format, as well as some documentaries and a range of publications for recommended reading.
