If you are a manager, you can use these guides with staff in the context of induction, supervision and continuing professional development." - BOOK JACKET
This is one of a series of guides designed to provide information for individuals studying for qualifications in social care in the UK, so obviously some specific information will not be relevant to New Zealand readers.
However, the principles and best practice presented here would have universal application and the style is straightforward and practical.
Covers the nature and characteristics of intellectual disability and its historical context , the basic principles of practice of advocacy, empowerment and active participation, how views and attitudes impact on the lives of individuals with intellectual disability and their family carers and how to promote communication with individuals with intellectual disability.
Each section includes “key learning points”, “thinking activities” and case studies and is attractively illustrated.
