About the Authors
  • Fully revised, this new edition reviews the most up-to-date and clinically relevant information on the mental health and behavioral problems of people with intellectual, developmental and learning disabilities, also previously known as mental retardation. Providing the latest evidence base from the literature and embracing clinical experience, it covers the essential facts and concepts relating to coexisting medical and psychiatric disorders, with new and updated chapters on mental health and epilepsy, schizophrenia spectrum disorders, personality disorders, and mental health problems in people with autism and related disorders. The disorder-based chapters are complemented by chapters on carer and family perspectives, possible future developments and contributions highlighting the principles of assessment, management and services from global and historical perspectives. This is essential hands-on practical advice for psychiatrists, psychologists and all other mental health professionals including nurses, therapists, social workers, managers, service providers and commissioners.

    • Provides practical, clinically relevant advice highlighting the principles of assessment and management, as well as the implications for services
    • Relevant to all members of the mental health, developmental and intellectual disabilities teams and identifying research trends and possible future developments
    • Written by an international, multidisciplinary team of experts, providing a global perspective

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… this is an excellent text for clinicians working in intellectual disabilities services. … It covers biological, psychological and social aspects of care very well.' Evan Yacoub, Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities

    'I recommend this book to all professionals who work with people with ID as well as to the carers and family members of people ID.' Shoumitro Deb, Advances in Mental Health and Intellectual Disabilities

    'I would recommend this book unreservedly: I've already ordered a copy for someone else. I work with young people with ID within generic CAMHS services and consider myself reasonably well informed, but this book pulled everything together. It taught me a lot more about the properties and usefulness of varying rating scales, made me think about services (and think again about transition and why it can be so difficult) and helped me understand how different philosophies and perspectives can affect care. It also refreshed my memory and understanding of areas, which do not often fall within my remit, and engaged my interest even in topics I would not previously have thought relevant to me at all such as dementia in ID. I really enjoyed reading it (and have now done so, for a lot of it, twice; first time by interesting chapters, second front to back. I got different things out of it each time). I really appreciated the 'Reflections' chapter. This has been the best/most useful/most interesting workrelated book I have read for a while, certainly in terms of information for size!'
