DURANTE, Adrielly Maronato; TAVARES, Arnold Henrique; PORTES, João Rodrigo Maciel  and  GESSER, Marivete. Perceptions Of Disability Among Psychology Students. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.3, pp.1-13. ISSN 2359-0769.

This study aimed to understand the perceptions about disability among students of a psychology course at a community university in the state of Santa Catarina. The study interviewed ten students who took two subjects in Psychology and Inclusion I and II. Data were obtained from a sociodemographic questionnaire and a semi-structured interview and analyzed based on content analysis. The guiding theoretical framework of the study was related to the field of Disability Studies. The results showed that the participants' perceptions of disability were mediated by conceptions of disability concerning the medical, social, and biopsychosocial models. Psychology training, social experiences, and experiences in the family context were important for the constitution of the interviewees' perceptions about disability. Finally, it highlights the importance of psychology courses offering knowledge related to disability and its intersections so that professionals in this area can develop a performance aimed at guaranteeing the human rights of people with disabilities.
