The Challenge of Severe Mental Handicap A Behaviour Analytic Approach Edited by Bob Remington, University of Southampton, UK This book is concerned with understanding the behaviour of people with severe mental handicap, and using that understanding both to devise remedial treatment procedures that can enhance their daily functioning and maximize their presence and participation in the community. It is written by a group of experts working in Europe and North America who share a strong commitment to the behaviour analytic approach, and who are concerned with both research and treatment. The book is thematically organized to emphasize three interlocking aspects of a behaviourally-based clinical response to severe mental handicap. The first section reviews theoretical and practical advances in the area; the second section explores the way that language and symbolic functions have been approached within this framework; the final section focuses on behaviour analytic approaches to service delivery for people with severe mental handicap, covering intervention in learning, home, and work environments, and relating research in these areas to the practical goals of normalization and social role valorization. This timely and innovative book reflects the current major surge of interest in functional analysis in the area of challenging behaviour and will prove invaluable to practitioners and researchers working in the field of severe mental handicap.
