Challenging Behaviour and People with Learning Disabilities: A handbook is an essential resource for those working with or caring for people with learning disabilities and behaviour that challenges. It provides timely and essential guidance to ensure that there is a competent workforce that can provide effective, ethical and high-quality support.
People with learning disabilities who have behaviour that is describes as challenging are one of the most vulnerable groups in society. They are at risk of being excluded from serviced, being denied opportunities and being placed away from their local communities and families. They are also more vulnerable to poor practise and abuse.
This user friendly and accessible resource emphasises the importance of respecting people who use services, their families and carers.
This handbook can be used alongside its companion resource Challenging Behaviour: A training pack to develop good practice in working with people with learning disabilities whose behaviour is described as challenging.
