VIEW PDF: IS DISABILITY A CHALLENGE OR A DIVINE BLESSING?

This article is both an attempt to analyse disability, as a precise aspect of suffering, and also a manner of exploring it. A starting point of the essay is represented by the idea that in the past not only disease was the reason for a person to be discriminated but also other elements such as: the belonging to another race or religion, the gender differences etc. Confronting disability generates the necessity of counselling. For a good relation of the counsellors with the counselled this writing presents the psycho-perceptive stages of the disability and their correct approach as well as the necessity for the counselled persons to be informed on the possibility of employment and promoted for their integration into jobs demanded on the labour market. After the comparative analysis of the three major monotheistic religions we sum up by asserting that Christianity is the only religion that can give suffering the value of a blessing.

Keywords : counselling, counselled, persons with disabilities, psycho-perceptive stages, discrimination
