9781853023095: Invisible Victims: Crime and Abuse Against People with Learning Disabilities

`[an] excellent and path-breaking book, which also considers crime prevention measures before giving advise on crime reporting, using the courts, and civil remedies. It contains a great deal of material useful to staff working with people with learning difficulties, plus training material and ideas.'

- Labour Campaign for Criminal Justice Newsletter

`This is an important and accessible book which is likely to prove useful to a variety of professional audiences. This book is both a handbook for practitioners and a summary of the state of knowledge about the criminal and other kinds of victimization suffered by people with learning difficulties. Alongside the literature review there are extracts from press reports as well as the relevant law, policies and charters, and details of organisations which will provide further information and help. There are also many vivid anecdotal accounts from social workers and from victims themselves, and these bring the research material to life in a remarkable way. This book represents a valiant attempt to combine research dissemination with practical tools for change, and it largely succeeds in its ambitious project...a timely and valuable addition to the literature.'

- British Journal of Social Work

`Williams ably describes the situation and the wide range of crime, abuse and victimisation which can take place... This publication will be an excellent source book.'

- Community Care

`Clear advice is offered in relation to crime prevention and how best to make use of press reporting and the courts should a crime occur. This is an excellent reference book. Key points are presented in useful summaries and the addresses of many relevant organisations are provided... This publication should be read by everyone interested in the rights of people with learning disabilities.'

- Nursing Times

`The book is a valuable contribution to the body of specialist information available about people with learning difficulties.'

- Connect Bulletin

`Chris' work is the most complete look at the subject today, giving details of research into the current situation and the relevant laws; providing a comprehensive guide as to action in particular situtations and making recommendations for changes in current practice and procedures. This book includes outline training sessions for support staff, advocates and the police.'

- Values into Action

`The book contains a wealth of detail and information...Clearly and accessibly written...provides excellent resource material for training staff and advocates, and for work with people with learning difficulties themselves.'

- Professional Social Work

`It is a scholarly work and relies upon extensive consultation and research...There are some salutary lessons and the book is disturbing to read, not only for examples of unacceptable conduct towards people with learning disabilities but also for illustrations of how well-intentioned people may behave in an inappropriate manner...everyone concerned with the welfare of mentally disabled and other vulnerable individuals will have much to learn form this comprehensive study of...the problem.'

- Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities

`I recommend this book as an invaluable reference for more or less anyone in this field, although perhaps one could single out advocates, staff trainers and service managers as those who could least afford to be without a copy. A feature that I found particularly appealing is the way the author takes care to illustrate good practice as well as holding bad practice up for vilification...Buy the book for your library; if you know a judge or magistrate you may consider it a good idea to send a copy on his or her birthday!'

- British Journal of Learning Disabilities

Invisible Victims outlines the range and nature of crimes against people with learning difficulties, and the way the law does - or should - relate to these crimes. It discusses the sources of victimization and deals with prevention specifically from the perspective of learning disabilities, outlining:

how to achieve redress for victims through the police and courts

methods for creating alternative means of redress to these usual channels.

The concerns voiced in the book will also have relevance for other minority groups who are `invisible' to current crime research and policy development.

Intended as a basis for action, the book contains material and ideas for staff training and offers clear policy proposals. The book will provoke discussion on the subject of crimes against people with learning difficulties among a variety of audiences.
