2021 Slagle Lecture: Working With Marginalized Populations
Sharon Gutman, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Newark, NJ
A marginalized population is a group of people who, because of personal attributes such as clinical diagnosis, socioeconomic status, age, race, or gender orientation, have been excluded by society from typical community participation. There are many marginalized social groups in society today, including homeless adults with mental illness and at-risk children in school systems in low socioeconomic status areas. This presentation discusses the experiences of marginalized populations and the unique ways in which OTs can work with these groups to facilitate needed skills supporting community participation.
