Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(12), 1019–1020. Reviews the booklets, Within reach: Providing family planning services to physically disabled women by Task Force on Concerns of Physically Disabled Women (1978) and Toward intimacy: Family planning and sexuality concerns of physically disabled women. 2nd ed by Task Force on Concerns of Physically Disabled Women (1978). Meant to be read together, these two well-written and sensitively illustrated booklets jointly address long-neglected family planning service-delivery. issues for physically disabled women. The many useful suggestions oriented to specific disabilities resulted from a survey of relevant literature; discussions with professionals in family planning, rehabilitation, and sexuality; and interviews with nearly 50 women representing a broad range of disability, age, and sociodemographic backgrounds.
