Presented by Elizabeth Martiny

Many disparaging social attitudes and behaviours relating to both physical disability and to women stunt the psychological and spiritual development of women with a physical disability. One powerful influence stemming from religious communities is the God-images that are promoted regarding disability and women. Certain God-images are restrictive and other images are liberating.

This presentation will focus on the narratives of a few women’s experiences concerning their psychological growth and religious development in regards to their disability and their God-images. As included in the research project their journeys will be presented in their own voices through verbal descriptions and art work.
