Reinventing Oneself After Loss

Of all the physical and cognitive losses after her brain injury, it was Hilary Zayed’s loss of self that was the least visible to others…but most painful for her. Her book explores her meaning of loss, the search for a new identity, and the reinvention of her “new self” with her new self-awareness. Art became her vehicle for self-exploration and self-expression, as she struggled to build a new identity and move forward. She shares her experiences (post-TBI) candidly, and her artwork speaks volumes about her passion for life.

The Macro Change Handbook: Organizing For Advocacy - Formal Steps to Macro Change

In his newest and fourth book on community inclusion for persons with disabilities, Al Condeluci focuses on the change process. Do you change the person who has a disability or special needs or do you change the environment? By addressing both, Condeluci explores the meaning and methods for micro and macro change. Taking a broader look at advocacy, he builds on the key concepts and theories of organizing with lots of examples of advocacy for both individual as well as systemic cultural change. This pragmatic approach to advocacy and community change is a practical handbook that will guide any advocate – family member, individual, provider or policy analyst through the nitty gritty of promoting and achieving real change for persons with disabilities and the community.
