Question 1  As you begin your discussions for this week I want you to think about this: Ironically there are still some cultures today that believe individuals with disabilities as well as those with mental illness are possessed and under the influence of some type of spirit. As a social worker, if you encounter someone that believes in such customs and beliefs and attempts or has attempted to perform a dangerous ritual (dangerous mentally, physically, emotionally), how do you respond as a culturally competent social worker? Question 2  Tell me why our society marginalizes people with disabilities, historically what has contributed to people with disabilities being treated differently. Also, if you will, what about in your home country, how were people with disabilities treated or categorized?
