This independent study was conducted by me at Assumption College as part of my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services and Rehabilitation Studies.
Please note this audio recording is about 50 minutes. Please feel free to pause this at your convenience should you want to continue listening to the audio blog, but would like to take a break, but I think you will learn a lot from the work I did back in my Freshmen year in college.
