The Power of CSD: Managing Information in Deaf Community

0-14.jpg

The information must free itself from the old known. To the Deaf community and the media everywhere in the world through social media—the only freedom lies in the unknown because whatever is known cannot be ignored from the past. Whatever the media learns the facts from Communications Service for the Deaf (CSD) about whoever the Deaf-owned organization were bounded, as soon as it put words around Deaf people’s experiences, it might affect them as state of being Deaf getting lost.

The month of May is Mental Health Awareness is an important learning experience for adequate mental health services in Deaf community. Deaf Counseling Center (DCC)–the first-Deaf owned counseling by Deaf women since 2001 has been the pioneers of mental health services with web-based platforms through Videophone (VP), FaceTime, Zoom, all the available platforms as long as I can remember back to year 2010 when I first learned about DCC through my Deaf friends from several states in America whom themselves been helpful thanks to web-based platforms.

It is the strongest proof that DCC had been the first-ever counseling organization to stay ahead even in technological wonders. It is a marvel invention!

Mental health awareness, may be challenging to slip what little remains of the Deaf community that limits Deaf people seek for help, and DCC takes a bold step, justifies empowerment whatever it takes to help Deaf people since year 2001 in a growing movement in both human interaction and web-based platforms to address a variety of social and life skills.

Sure, there are many Deaf communities around the world, for so long Deaf people have defined themselves in opposition to how the general society has viewed Deaf people, and they have defined themselves, and been defined, by that which seemed to be in them as most different, but their struggles alone in Deaf community with lack of access to mental health, not its difference from the society defining who Deaf people are, and the access to mental health services makes them better.

CSD’s website: Challenging Misconceptions Since 1975.

“For over 40 years, Communications Service for the Deaf has been working hard to create opportunities that allows each Deaf person to discover their gift that they bring to the world.” 

For almost 20 years, Deaf Counseling Center has been working hard to create healthy mental health services that allow each Deaf people to empower their well being that they can make all the difference available in Deaf community. It is no easy feat, and they deserve all the hard work.

However, the pioneer by Deaf counseling through web-based platforms who been labeled on the wrong side had been approved by CSD not to recognize DCC as the first Deaf women owned counseling to offer web-based platforms is biggest mistake. DCC is the primary source for its first ideas in American Sign Language (ASL), and nowhere else are intense intellectual debates in ASL a common part of DCC’s mission values. When DCC is silenced, Deaf community is silenced.

It is not the first time CSD had neglected pioneers in Deaf community claiming that they have the right information because of the enumerated powers forging their homework done by CSD researchers or decision makers–yet, 18 years later, CSD said that DCC is not the first Deaf women owned counseling organization to offer web-based platforms is a flagrantly neglected, to CSD’s advantage and give National Deaf Therapy (NDT) the honours that they claim they were the first Deaf women owned therapy organization to offer web-based platforms whom just created baby steps just a year ago (2018)–It is something CSD needs to challenge its own misconceptions.

A Powerful Deaf Documentary

video-trailer-deaf-people-in-tib-366x205.jpg

There is a quote that keeps me thinking about that all the time, Adorno once said: “The splinter in your eye is the best magnifying glass

The magnifying glass will make you think as long as you watch a documentary by Deaf Nation; Deaf People in Tibet is sure inspirational and powerful! The best thing is that it is free to watch and it will worth every minute of your time-I mean, appreciate the filmmaking as the magnifying glass where Deaf people share their survival stories.

It is true that two percent in the world that Deaf people have access to education. We all know that education is the mother tongue of all in Deaf world today. There is no way we cannot be ignored from educational wonders. I would like to share my reflection about Deaf people in Tibet-first of all, we need to take a serious look at ourselves and realize that we are selfish in many ways. The documentary shows it all: the field of sociology and human-environment interactions what Deaf People in Tibet had shown.

We need to study more into the social dimensions of major education problems where Deaf people there have been banned. It’s incredible the society allows that kind of behavior. We also need to step back to consider the broader concepts, for example, education use to explain the causes of social problems and their possible solutions. With these insights in hand, we need to take a closer look at how social movements have responded to and shaped outcomes of different educational controversies.

In the last part of Deaf People in Tibet, it has applied what we have learned to an analysis of current education for Deaf people around the world chosen by oppressors of the hearing world. Because…this is a human fact that Deaf People in Tibet should not be suffered at all. Deaf people around the world, corners of it, have every right to education, among other things, the art of making distinctions.

Yes, Deaf culture is wrapped up in silence; a surge of information, knowledge, and communication is the major key to Deaf people’s pursuit of happiness today. The documentary is worth watching and helps us to honor our past and to heed our possibilities for the future.

Here’s the link to watch a documentary with subtitles–remember, it’s free!
