In the field of learning difficulties there has been a revolution in professional understanding and user aspirations towards delivery of services. Institutional models no longer prevail; language, attitudes and practices have been transformed. Full of up-to-date case studies, practice examples and points for reflection, this exciting textbook explores how to embed this culture shift into mainstream services. It explores theoretical frameworks for working with people with learning difficulties and examines the role of services and the social worker, drawing on person-centred, community-centred and family involvement perspectives. Essential reading for anyone studying social work or nursing people with learning difficulties.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book will be an invaluable support for social work and social care professionals seeking to develop their role in ways which promote inclusive and valued lives for people who need to rely on services." Professor Jan Walmsley, Assistant Director, The Health Foundation
Creating better lives with people with learning difficulties, where they are socially included and connected and have opportunities to exercise real choice and control, lies at the heart of this engaging and accessible book. Those studying social work and social care at undergraduate and postgraduate levels will find a wealth of critical debate, illustrative examples, challenging questions for reflection, and pointers to helpful resources, to enable them to better implement key policy and practice ideas of the 21st Century. Its contents should also be of interest to experienced practitioners wanting to review and reflect on their practice. Julie Ridley, Reader in Applied Social Sciences at the School of Social Work, Care and Community, University of Central Lancashire, UK
