Disability and society: the psychological dimension


  • Viktoriya Overchuk Донецький національний університет імені Василя Стуса


The problem of integration of persons with disabilities into public life has existed throughout human existence. At the same time, despite the urgency of the issue, it will not be a secret that the level of solving this problem remains low even in developed countries. An active social life, which includes work, leisure, communication with family and friends, is so common for many people that not everyone even realizes the value of what they have. At the same time, there are people among us for whom each of these elements of everyday life is extremely important, because they are completely or partially deprived of such seemingly ordinary activities.
