The Handbook of Intellectual Disability and Clinical Psychology Practice will equip clinical psychologists in training with the skills necessary to complete a clinical placement in the field of intellectual disability. The book is divided into seven sections, which cover conceptual frameworks, assessment frameworks and intervention frameworks, and the specific problems that arise in infancy and early childhood, middle childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Chapters combine discussion of the theoretical and empirical issues with practical considerations. The authors incorporate detailed practice descriptions throughout, which will allow clinicians to use the book as a step-by-step guide to clinical work. Practice exercises are also included where relevant to aid skills development. This comprehensive, evidence-based practice Handbook will prove an invaluable resource for anyone undertaking postgraduate training in clinical psychology, as well as practising clinical psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists.
The Handbook of Intellectual Disability and Clinical Psychology Practice is one of a set of three Handbooks published by Routledge, which includes The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology and The Handbook of Adult Clinical Psychology (Edited by Alan Carr & Muireann McNulty).
