This assumption is not held by everyone and is often challenged by groups and individuals representing service users and by service users themselves.

In his classic book Stigma (1963) the sociologist Erving Goffman argues that stigma is a relationship of devaluation in which an individual is disqualified from full social acceptance. Society establishes ways of categorising persons and what are felt to be the ‘naturalâ€™ or ‘normalâ€™ attributes for each category. Stigma, then, is essentially a pejorative label that sticks, one that is applied to an individual's ‘differentnessâ€™, their perceived non-confo

From an early age, play is important to a child's development and learning. It isn't just physical. It can involve cognitive, imaginative, creative, emotional and social aspects. It is the main way most children express their impulse to explore, experiment and understand. Children of all ages play.

Ryan Grady: Observables and Index Theorems
Ryan Grady, University of Notre Dame The story of quantum eld theory and index theory is of a happy marriage going back at least to the 1980's. In this talk we give a status report of a perturbative approach to the algebraic index theorem (and further the analytic index theorem). The key ingredient is the factorization algebra of observables in a one-dimensional Chern- Simons theory. This talk is based on joint work with Owen Gwilliam.
