Active Support: Enabling and Empowering People with Intellectual Disabilities, Jim, Mansell & Julie, Beadle‐Brown Jessica Kingsley. Active Support is a proven model of care that enables and empowers people with intellectual disabilities to participate fully in all aspects of their lives.
They describe how to engage people with intellectual disabilities in meaningful activity as active participants, and look at the communication style needed to foster positive relationships between carers and the people they are supporting. Highlighting the main issues for those trying to put Active Support into practice, they explain what is needed on a day-to-day basis to support the implementation, improvement and maintenance of the approach, along with possible solutions for the difficulties they may encounter.
Finally, they look at how to integrate Active Support with other person-centred approaches, drawing on examples from various organisations and individual case studies. This is a book to buy for any student or practitioner in a relevant field.
It provides a concise explanation of active support - meaningful, engaging and fulfilling daily activities by carers providing intensive support - and how to set about providing this. It will be useful for families, care providers and health and social care practitioners who work or care for people with intellectual disabilities.
Its great value is that by drawing on research as to what works in practice then it is both a key source of evidence and a call of action to effect change at different levels Each chapter manages to discuss and analyse issues and challenges with which we are all familiar. The evidence is used to highlight what works and to recommend best practice at different levels. This is an important book that deserves to be read by students, social workers, team leaders, senior managers, policy makers and inspectorate staff and its recommendations acted upon.
Written by two outstanding academic leaders, it draws together the significant body of research that forms the evidence base for person centred active support. Its unique contribution and thus immense value is the clarity with which this knowledge is translated into a comprehensive guide to every day practice for staff, front line leaders and senior managers. This book is a key source of theory and evidence for students, researchers and policy makers, as well providing practitioners and organisations with a blueprint for action.
I recommend this concise volume for any service provider or policymaker who supports this population.
It is well worth the read. Eidelman, H. Rodney Sharp Professor of Human Services Policy and Leadership, University of Delaware This is a really helpful book for anyone wishing not only to understand the place of person centred active support in enabling people with complex support needs to exercise control over their own lives, but to implement it effectively. It is meticulously researched and distils experience gained from implementation really well.
It is now at the core of almost all the work that I do. Added to basket. Cathy Glass. Counselling Skills and Theory 4th Edition. Margaret Hough.
