Discrimination has arisen over centuries, and it will take time for lasting change to occur. Isolation and segregation have become the norm for people with and without disabilities. Isolation has even become preferable to many people with disabilities who over time have lived in an oppressive and discriminating society. Many people with disabilities have been forced into an attitude of complacency. They have felt discrimination for so long, whether intentional or unintentional, that they have chosen to isolate and segregate themselves. Some people who have disabilities might sit at home and not become involved in things they enjoy because of the potential embarrassment of subnormal performance or of performing at a level that will alienate people without disabilities. People with disabilities may choose isolation to avoid the stares of others. As a result, people without disabilities come to assume that people with disabilities want “to keep to themselves.” It all becomes a cyclical and pervasive situation that is hard to change. Discrimination leads to isolation and segregation, which creates powerless and socially inferior people who feel devalued and discriminated against. As powerless people, they find advocating for changes to be hard, because most of the population do not even realize changes are needed.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

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?
