This volume provides all those concerned with the delivery of care and services to people with a learning difficulty with an up-to-date overview of recent development in the area. Three major themes are explored: empowering individuals, change management and working with clients. Within this framework, the authors examine the historical context of current service delivery and the influences from Europe and America on care practice. Practical guidelines are incorporated for staff who might wish to implement some of the ideas within the chapters.
