Choice Support staff contribute chapters in new book

This brand-new edition of our best-selling handbook, brings the topic fully up to date, with legal changes, latest approaches to supporting relationships and sexuality, plus the inclusion of contemporary issues like sex, relationships and the internet, domestic violence and supporting people with learning disabilities who identify as LGBT.

Sexuality and Learning Disabilities is grounded in research and best practice. It is accessible for staff occupying many roles, for example support workers and managers in learning disability service settings, supported housing, community learning disability teams, social workers, students in health and social care and any professional who may find themselves supporting a person with a learning disability from time to time. The book may also be helpful for family members.

The new edition is a complete revision and updating of content, aiming to address key knowledge requirements and concerns of people working in the field, with opportunities for reflection and professional development. Case studies illustrate the content to help the reader explore how best to address issues in practice.

Edited by Dr Claire Bates (Choice Support's Quality Analyst), the new book includes a chapter on Supported Loving and supporting relationships.

Dr. Thomas Doukas (Choice Support's Head of Inclusive Research & Involvement) wrote a chapter on supporting LGBT people with a learning disability. 

Sexuality and Learning Disabilities is available to buy here.
