Person Centred Planning and Care Management with People with Learning Disabilities

Synopsis

"This timely book provides a reflective analysis of person centred planning for people with learning disabilities, and supports the implementation of policies promoting social inclusion, individualisation, deinstitutionalisation and user-centred services. The contributors draw on practice and research to explore a range of related issues. Helpful case studies illustrate best practice in person centred planning and care management, and the authors offer a rich variety of ideas for increasing the participation, self-esteem and quality of life of people with learning disabilities through the development of person-centred approaches. This practical and accessible text is an invaluable guide for policy makers, managers, practitioners, researchers and students working in the fields of learning disability and social care."
