The subject of this newly revised, second edition is rehabilitation education, and concerns behavioural and social issues including competence training, learning, and adaptation of people who are disabled. The book starts from a basis in mental handicap and looks at a wide range of other disabilities such as visual impairment, learning disability, disorders of aging and mental illness. The authors bring research and practice together and provide rehabilitation practitioners and others in clinical psychology, educational psychology, social workers and counsellors concerned with rehabilitation with a set of guidelines which will assist them to develop a comprehensive model of behavioural rehabilitation.
