Abstract

This study aimed to study the striving for normalcy of families with autistic individuals by using Foucault’s postmodern framework of disability and the bio-medical model of autism. The methodology was a qualitative study that emphasized a participatory approach and in-depth interviews that focused on the intersubjectivity of meanings of autism. The findings indicated that the mainstream explanation of autism was based on a bio-medical model, viewing autism as an impairment to be corrected by medical intervention. Families hoped that medical treatment would provide normalization processes resulting in their children being able to study in an inclusive educational system. Many families had experienced dealing with abuse of authority, stigmatization, and discrimination. Some families had suffered from, and were willing to comply with, the requirements of professional authorities for a while, before refusing further intervention. This study argued that the biomedical model does not provide the absolute answer to caring for the autistic individuals and their families. This study recommended a more humanistic approach throughout the therapeutic process and social understanding to create an inclusive society by accepting the identity of autistic individuals and giving them the opportunity to present themselves as they are, even though their deficit cannot be corrected.

หัวเรื่อง:ไม่มีชื่อไทย (ชื่ออังกฤษ : Social Vulnerability and Suffering of Flood-Affected People: Case Study of 2011 Mega Flood in Thailand)

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the social vulnerability of flood-affected people resulting from the mega floods during October 2011 to June 2012, in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya province, in the central flood plain of Thailand. Qualitative techniques including narrative interviews, observation, and focus group discussions with ten respondents were used to collect the data. The results dealt with the lived experiences of flood-affected people who became vulnerable to physical hazards and were exposed to multiple forms of suffering, caused by social factors such as negative economic impacts and political abuse. It was found that flood protection, public and private assistance, and social services focused mainly on the industrial zones, but neglected people living in the vicinity. Flood experience was affected by capitalistic ideology and political power from the patronage system, which produced inequality in assistance. Not only were people affected by visible suffering from physical impacts, they also experienced invisible forms of suffering due to uncertainty, unstable emotions, and mental trauma that affected their mental and physical health. The invisible sources of suffering gained less attention, so social arrangements should consider the social vulnerability that could generate suffering. Recommendations regarding future policy and interventions are given.
