Product description

Review

'The major barrier in the way of competent counselling provision for people with learning disabilities is not the presence of a learning disability, but the lack of understanding of the relevance of counselling by potential referrers...Sally Hodges has written for a wide range of professionals who work with people with learning disabilities, and introduces theoretical concepts in an accessible way by using clinical vignettes to illustrate each point.
An introduction to theory and some time spent thinking about different life stages, personal histories, presenting problems and relationship issues will provide an invaluable introduction to the emotional worlds of people with learning disabilities.' - from the Foreword by Sheila Hollins, Professor of Psychiatry of Learning Disability, St George's Hospital Medical School, University of London

'This is a book for front-line staff who wish to know more about the place that counselling might have in helping their clients to cope with emotional distress. This excellent book is likely to be of interest to all who work with adults with learning difficulties.' - Oliver Russell, Honorary Research Fellow, Norah Fry Research Centre, University of Bristol, Community Care

'This book is expressly addressed at professionals who work with adults with learning difficulties. It is written in a very clear and comprehensible style with a large number of pertinent case studies that make it accessible toa wide range of readers including those who have little theoretical knowledge of counselling or learning disability. However, while being an extremely useful and practical handbook, this book also refers to a range of different theoretical perspectives and texts and thus deserves a wider audience that should include those involved in university teaching and research.' - Liz Maudslay, Skill (National Bureau for Students with Disabilities), London, International Journal of Lifelong Education

5.0 out of 5 stars Counselling Adults With Learning Disabilities 3 Jan. 2007
By David Glynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this text excellent. It is full of practical examples of working with this client group that are easily transferable. The text hilights some very useful insights i.e. the clients internal model which, having a good understanding is fundamental to working with clients with learning disabilities. It guides the reader in some very useful pyschodynamic techniques that can be easily added to a counsellor's toolbox. I highly recommend this book for counsellor's working in the field of disability.
