One of the most promising theoretical approaches to analysing the links between disability and poverty is using the concepts "social suffering" and "structural violence". Social suffering is imposed on people by conditions outside their control. These may be political, economical, ecological or others. By seeing suffering as social in its basic character, the blame and guilt is taken away from those who are suffering and placed on these outside forces. By focusing on social suffering we take the responsibility for the consequences of poverty away from the poor. Structural violence is the violence of everyday life that causes social suffering, as well as the extraordinary violence of war and other disasters that are beyond the control of the individual person with a disability and his/her family.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
