Description - Counselling Adults with Learning Disabilities by Sally Hodges

Taking a psychodynamic approach, Counselling Adults with Learning Disabilities describes current theoretical ideas in this area. Theories are described in an accessible way, with detailed examples given to demonstrate the translation from theory into practice. Common problems are considered within a 'life span' framework, with attention to specific difficulties such as bereavement, abuse and challenging behaviour. The wider context including relationships with families, groups and staff have also been given thoughtful consideration. Finally outcome evidence for counselling is explored.
