Disability

Cultural Context of Disability and Stigma

Cultural context looks at individuals in society and how they are raised and how their culture affects their behavior. It incorporates learned values and shared attitudes among groups of people. It includes language, norms, customs, ideas, beliefs, and meanings and individual characteristics. Therefore, when the cultural context of a person or group is not understood, Stigma may occur. Culture is very important because our cultural orientation is present in every interaction, and it is how society identifies us as an individual or group. We tend to make assumptions about a person’s beliefs or behaviors based on a single cultural indicator, particularly related to race or ethnicity, when our cultural identities are a complex weave of all the cultural groups around us or that we belong to that influence our values, beliefs, and behaviors.

Recent knowledge emerging out of the disability rights movements and grounded in disability studies research promotes a new understanding of disability as a socially constructed culture and as a social identity. Many people support the emerging issue of “disability culture” or “the culture of disability” and many more dispute disability as being a cohesive force to form a cultural group. As we challenge these assumptions and traditional views of disability, our beliefs can become more meaningful and relevant to the disability community and more informative to social development.
