In this comprehensive dictionary, Mary Lindsey has brought together terms and concepts from a wide variety of fields. The medical aspects of mental handicap, its causes, prognoses, and treatments are covered in detail. But although the cause of mental handicap may be medical, subsequent interventions may be sociological, psychological, educational, medical, paramedical, or psychiatric. This is reflected in the choice of entries, making the "Dictionary of Mental Handicap" an invaluable source of reference for all those involved with mentally handicapped people in any capacity.
"Valuable as a quick reference for clinicians as well as students. Recommended."
