DISABILITY JUSTICE not through Disability Simulations! - Replicating an experiment on the mood altering effects of imagining oneself with a disability, we found that participants felt more depressed, confused, helpless, embarrassed, guilty, and less competent following activities asking them to simulate disability compared to baseline levels. These results reveal the significant risks associated with using such activities as training devices if not connected to opportunities that promote disability justice.
