Counseling training commonly relegates disability training to rehabilitation counseling. Accordingly, disability related research and practice are predominantly addressed in rehabilitation field, which often adopts a medical model perspective. Besides, as other counseling specialties lack the competencies to serve people with disabilities (PWD), they may marginalize this group even further. In this training, we present a holistic approach from a minority model perspective across the all curriculum. PWD are a minority group experiencing discrimination and marginalization. Counseling curriculum needs to be dedicated to appropriately include PWD to prevent reproducing this marginalization. Participants will find concrete examples of incorporating the needs of PWD into several courses such as research, ethics, diagnosis and assessment.
