Intellectual Disabilities: A Systemic Approach
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe application of systemic ideas and principles in working with people with intellectual disabilities, their families, and their service systems has grown over the last decade. This book, for the first time, brings together the writings of a group of practitioners who have been using this approach in their clinical practice. They hope to inspire others to try different ways of working with people with intellectual disabilities and their wider systems, so that they can have the choice of a wide range of therapeutic approaches. It is also hoped that systemic practitioners who are unfamiliar with this client group might consider extending their practice to work also with people with intellectual disabilities.The Contributors: Sandra Baum, Denise Cardone, Jennifer Clegg, Glenda Fredman, Sabrina Halliday, Amanda Hilton, Susan King, Henrik Lynggaard, Helen Pote, Selma Rikberg Smyly, Lorna Robbins, Katrina Scior, and Sarah Walden.
