This flexible new edition of our best-selling training pack provides a valuable resource for working with individuals and groups, as well as for staff training, on the vital topic of menopause. It provides thoroughly piloted and comprehensive information about the menopause, in addition to how women with learning disabilities can be affected and how they might best be supported. Training on the menopause within services is very rare, therefore the exercises in this pack are designed to encourage those with or without specialist knowledge to run training for other staff, and supportive work with service users.The group work option gives women with learning disabilities the opportunity to come together and recognise that the menopause is normal part of life, something that happens to all women. As well as learning about the menopause it can foster a sense of sharing and connection. As a resource for individual work, the materials provide an opportunity to give information and discuss personal subjects in depth, with the aid of pictures and film. The resource also contains a variety of staff training exercises, with supporting materials, which may help prepare staff for this work. They are designed to help staff recognise when women with learning disabilities might be going through the menopause and how they might help. The training also enables staff to examine their own and other people's attitudes to the menopause.The staff training materials, leaflets and pictures can all be downloaded from here: https://www.pavpub.com/supporting-women-through-menopause-resources/
