Recent years have seen a revolution in the field of working with people who have learning difficulties—both professional understanding and user expectations about services and the ways they are provided have been completely transformed. This book offers up-to-date case studies, examples from practice, and points for further reflection, all aimed at people who are learning to work with those who have learning difficulties. It offers a close examination of the role of services and social workers, emphasizing person-centered, one-on-one, and community-focused approaches.

About the Author:

Susan Hunter is an honorary fellow in social work at the University of Edinburgh. Denis Rowley is a project consultant with Thera Trust Development Team.

Review:

“An invaluable support for social work and social care professionals.” (Jan Walmsley, the Health Foundation)

“Creating better lives with people with learning difficulties, where they are socially included and connected and have opportunities to exercise real choice and control, lies at the heart of this engaging and accessible book. Those studying social work and social care at undergraduate and postgraduate levels will find a wealth of critical debate, illustrative examples, challenging questions for reflection, and pointers to helpful resources, to enable them to better implement key policy and practice ideas of the twenty-first century. Its contents should also be of interest to experienced practitioners wanting to review and reflect on their practice.” (Julie Ridley, University of Central Lancashire, UK)
