This book explores the use and effects of psychotherapy with the mentally handicapped. It discusses the issues involved in providing psychotherapy for this client group, including the implications of prejudice and stereotyping and the clients' own constructions of their disabilities. The authors outline the theory, practice and techniques of a range of individual or group therapeutic approaches for different circumstances, including psychotherapy within families for mentally handicapped children. The policy and training implications for practitioners are reviewed. The overall aim of this guide is to show the importance of, and provide a resource for, the adoption of therapeutic approaches in the treatment of mentally handicapped people.
