Understanding Emotions in People with Learning Disabilities

Price: £35.00
Printable and photocopiable factsheets to help staff understand and manage the emotions of sadness, anxiety and anger in people with learning disabilities.
Author(s): Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Everyone, including people with learning disabilities, experiences emotions – they sometimes feel sad, anxious or angry – it’s a normal part of being human. When working with people with learning disabilities, staff will need to acknowledge emotions as normal responses and how to recognise when people may need emotional support. 

The factsheets in Understanding Emotions in People with Learning Disabilities help people to understand what makes people feel sad, anxious or angry, how to recognise the signs and allow people to experience these emotions, how different people cope, and what can be done to manage emotions.

Understanding Emotions on People with Learning Disabilities can be used by care workers, personal assistants, managers and employers in nursing, residential, supported living, day care and domiciliary services for people with learning disabilities, local authority services.
