    Medical Education - Mythology Special Issue

    Posted by Jill Anderson on December 12, 2017 at 16:41 0 Comments

    Myths and legends exist in every culture. Typically, they are so commonly believed that they are not noticed or questioned by most people within the culture. Even in this day and age of “evidence-based education” many myths survive through assumption, authority, or poorly grounded claims that the evidence says ‘such and such’.

    In an effort to shed light on broadly held views that deserve closer scrutiny, if not outright abandonment, Medical Education is planning a…

    Academic Ableism: Disability and higher education - new book

    Posted by Jill Anderson on November 24, 2017 at 20:00 0 Comments

    Academic Ableism brings together disability studies and institutional critique to recognize the ways that disability is composed in and by higher education, and rewrites the spaces, times, and economies of disability in higher education to place disability front and center.  For too long, argues Jay Timothy Dolmage, disability has been constructed as the antithesis of higher education, often positioned as a distraction, a drain, a problem to be solved. The ethic of…

    Croatia: out of institutions, into the world

    Posted by Jill Anderson on November 19, 2017 at 20:00 0 Comments

    More than 8,200 people with intellectual or psychosocial disabilities in Croatia remain in segregated institutions and psychiatric hospitals with little control over decisions that affect their lives, Human Rights Watch said. While the Croatian government has made some progress in protecting the rights of people with disabilities, the process of moving people out of institutions and into community-based living arrangements has been limited and slow. In a video released by Human Rights Watch,…

    Posted by Jill Anderson on November 18, 2017 at 12:00 0 Comments

    Globally, the appetite for higher education is great, but what do students and societies gain? Quality in Undergraduate Education foregrounds the importance of knowledge acquisition at university. Many argue that university education is no longer a public good due to the costs incurred by students who are then motivated by the promise of lucrative employment rather than by studying a discipline for its own sake. McLean, Abbas and Ashwin, however, reveal a…

    International Institute for Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal

    Posted by Jill Anderson on November 18, 2017 at 11:55 0 Comments

    'The International Institute for Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal (IIPDW) was created to respond to a glaring need in mental health: to develop ways for helping people withdraw from psychiatric drugs.

    Mental health has failed to provide support to people who want to reduce or withdraw from their psychiatric drugs. Often, people are simply told it is a bad idea, and thus are left to try to reduce or withdraw without the support they need.

    Indeed, psychiatric drugs have been…
