The graduates gain knowledge about scientific core resources in DDS and can apply them in their professional environment of "Disability Care".

They are familiar with the development of the international philosophical-ethical care debate and know about the gender-specific inequalities and inequities, which are established in traditional social care operations. They are able to develop a productive perspective in contemporary approaches to an "inclusive culture of care" (e. g. Community Care Models), which corresponds to other international models.

They gain an understanding in the basics and conditions of alternative theories to realise inclusive societies and their socio-political models as well as a detailed theoretical and practical introduction to life coaching.

The knowledge is furthermore used to reflect upon their professional identity.

Basic dimensions and functions of profession and professionalism (professionalisation theories) are discussed as well as the formation of a professional identity in the course of DDS. Students are informed that DDS are on the one hand based on scientific research, but on the other hand offer new professional fields of action. Particularly important is the creation of a professional identity in the fields of "DDS and Advocacing". The emancipatory basic orientation of the studies integrates forms of "Peer Counceling", "Peer Support", "personal assistance" and the support of self-representation movements like "Self-Advocacy" for the formation of a professional identity.
