Thriving Through and Beyond Trauma: Adjustment to Acquired Disability

Gary Karp, Author, Life on Wheels: The A to Z Guide to Living Fully with Mobility Issues and Disability & the Art of Kissing

Karp injured his spinal cord and became paraplegic in 1973 at the age of 18 in a fall from a tree. Now he is an internationally recognized voice for what he terms the "Modern Disability" experience. The author of two books, numerous articles and blogs, and a highly active public speaker and trainer, Karp sheds light on the innate drive in us all to reach for life and potential. Karp believes success depends on factors such as: access to services and a strong support network.
