I’m very excited to announce the publication of a new book titled ‘Rethinking Rehabilitation,’ that includes the writing of a few Critical Physiotherapy Network members.
Barbara Gibson was one of the instigators of the project, and is one of the co-editors. She also co-authored chapters on Rethinking Rehabilitation: Theory, Practice, History—and the Future, and Rethinking “Normal Development” in Children’s Rehabilitation with Gail Teachman, and Yani Hamdani.
There is a chapter on Rethinking Movement: Postmodern Reflections on a Dominant Rehabilitation Discourse by me, Barbara and Joanna K Fadyl
A chapter titled Rehabilitation and Recovery of Self-Identity Emily J Thomas, William M M Levack, and William J Taylor
And Karen Whalley Hammell wrote a chapter on Rethinking Rehabilitation’s Assumptions: Challenging “Thinking-as-usual” and Envisioning a Relevant Future.
So all in all a pretty impressive undertaking.
The book takes a critical view of rehabilitation and asks offers some cutting-edge thinking that is very applicable to contemporary physiotherapy practice.
