Abstract

How are the most sought after end-points of rehabilitation like community participation and social integration achieved for individuals least able to mobilize the social and material resources needed for health? Drawing on research with spinal cord injured adults, this presentation asks provocative questions about the obligations and means by which occupational science and occupational therapy respond to the persistence of social inequalities that characterize the lives of persons with spinal cord injuries, particularly visible minorities and the poor. The presentation explores anthropology’s contributions to understanding inclusion and exclusion and examines the role of “meaningful occupations” in facilitating community participation after spinal cord injury.
