'This excellent, informative and well presented, a book provides the reader with fourteen edited chapters covering an area of policy and practice that is quite specific but will inform anyone interested in the development of a service user participation ethos in adult social care. It is a book that is relevant to managers and practitioners, both as students and qualified professionals, as well as academics. Care management is now well established in the everyday practice of predominantly statutory organisations. This book revisits the principles of this method of assessing and planning the care needs of adult service users, and introduces Person Centred Planning (PCP) as a suitable method for ensuring that much of the empowerment rhetoric care management is actually realised.' - British Journal of Social Work 'Part of the attraction of this book is its strong practice component. This is applicable to the different professionals working with people with learning disabilities, in whatever their service configuration. For students, the book will also provide a good introduction to the impact of person centred planning and its connections to a long history of similar initiatives.' - Journal of Interprofessional Care 'This book is a stimulating and challenging read of those working in service development generally, as well as learning disability services. There is a potential broad care management readership that might also find this relevant and interesting.' - Journal of Interprofessional Care 'This is an important book. It brings together chapters by many of the foremost researchers and practitioners in person centred planning. The book contains many ideas for taking the PCP process to a higher level of sophistication to really underpin the future development of appropriate and effective services.' - Community Living 'This book will help social workers to reconnect with the core values of their profession and to challenge institutionalised policies and practices. It has proven to be a valuable teaching resource and whilst its focus is on people with learning disabilities, the principles of PCP that it raises are relevant to any service user group and social work arena. Highly recommended.' - Professional Social Work 'There are many important issues facing the care management system today in the light of person-centred planning and approaches, and you would be hard-pressed to find a better collection of insightful and radical thinkers in this area than those featured here. It asks hard questions, and challenges the professional to adopt more inclusive and accessible work practices. Wherever you work in the field of learning difficulties you should read this book carefully and aim to put "person-centeredness" at the core of your practice.' - Community Care 'You would be hard-pressed to find a better collection of insightful and radical thinkers in the area of care management. Wherever you work in the field of learning difficulties you should read this book carefully and seek to put "person centredness" at the core of your practice. The challenge for professionals, is making it a reality for individuals.' - Community Care This timely book provides a reflective analysis of person centred planning for people with learning disabilities, complementing policy initiatives that focus on individualised planning and service user involvement. Drawing on practical experience and research findings, the contributors explore policy and practice issues, including: * advocacy and empowerment * risk management and adult protection * inter-agency and inter-professional working * ethnicity and culture * de-institutionalisation. Vivid case studies illustrate best practice in person centred planning, and the authors offer a rich variety of ideas for increasing the participation, self-esteem and quality of life of people with learning disabilities. This practical and accessible text is an invaluable guide for policy makers, carers and social work managers, academics and students.

Each preceding book in the Living Therapyseries provides a demonstration of the application of the person-centred approach to counselling and psychotherapy to clients presenting with particular issues. To complement these, this book focuses more on the supervisory element of the therapeutic process. It brings together examples of supervision sessions from the Living Therapyseries, and presents each one as an example of person-centred supervisory practice of person-centred counselling. The supervision sessions deal with a range of issues that arise when working with clients who are seeking counselling in order to resolve difficulties from a wide range of difficult human experience. Each supervision session is introduced with a summary of the background, and points for discussion are included at the end of each chapter to stimulate further thought and debate. The book does not attempt to demonstrate a definitive way to apply person-centred principles to supervision, but does demonstrate core principles. It will prove valuable to experienced and novice supervisors, and to those uncertain about supervising counsellors working in areas outside their own professional experience. It should also be read by counsellors in training who are preparing to be supervised, for whom the book offers insights into this collaborative process.

Person-centred care is the idea that the healthcare professional shifts their focus from routine tasks and processes to the individual needs of the patients. It has been highlighted as the cornerstone of high quality care. But whilst few practitioners intend to work in a non-person-centred way, for reasons such as priorities, organisational policies, workplace culture and resources, a person-centred approach can be very difficult to achieve. This book provides a practice-focused exploration of how the ideas of person-centeredness can be developed and incorporated in to everyday practice: - It forms each chapter around an engaging case study, with examples from adult and child health, mental health, learning disabilities and many more. - It introduces the theoretical basis of person-centred care, including the benefits it has for working environments, staff and patients. - It demonstrates how meaningful practice development partnerships can be made with patients, including who to involve and how to involve them. - It takes the reader through the steps of developing a person-centred ethos- from encouraging people to participate in the development, to evaluating the progress and sustaining it in the long run. With clear and accessible guidance through the use of chapter overviews, key points, activities and web-based resources, this is an important book for anyone interested in developing a person-centred approach to care.

Researchers and practitioners in social services set out the theory and methodology of person-centered planning, which has evolved from an obscure way of helping disenfranchised people into a popular philosophy and approach in the field of developmental disabilities. It is often discounted, they say, because it is very different from conventional professional practice and challenges traditional research methods.

Written by a leading healthcare academic and an accredited international business coach, this book takes a new approach to one of the most crucial issues in healthcare – how to care for patients appreciatively, responsively and compassionately. In the light of the findings of the Francis Report (2013), and at a time when healthcare services are under enormous pressure, there is a clear and urgent need for such a book. Despite the challenges of ill health, the authors demonstrate that the opportunity is there for any healthcare practitioner to draw out what the patient needs and desires, in line with the patient’s own values, purposes and beliefs. This approach seeks to alleviate suffering and allows the patient to be more empowered and motivated to change, discovering choice and possibility in times of adversity. In this way, the practitioner can help the patient increase their own resilience and resourcefulness. At the same time, the practitioner discovers their own ability to self-care and self-manage. Aimed at healthcare students and practitioners at all levels, Appreciative Healthcare Practice will provide a valuable and supportive learning resource for a wide range of individuals involved in caring. Contents include: Introduction Carers’ stories Compassionate and dignified care Professionalism – on becoming a professional Applying appreciative inquiry in practice and education Creativity and care Applying the three-eye model to healthcare Mindful healthcare practice The appreciative care worker and coach

Interprofessional Rehabilitation: a Person-Centred Approach is a concise and readable introduction to the principles and practice of a person-centred interprofessional approach to rehabilitation, based upon a firm scientific evidence base. Written by a multi-contributor team of specialists in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing, psychology and rehabilitation medicine, this text draws together common themes that cut across the different professional groups and the spectrum of health conditions requiring rehabilitation, and sets out a model of practice that is tailored to the specific needs of the client. Showing interprofessionalism at work in a range of clinical contexts, the book argues that effective rehabilitation is best conducted by well-integrated teams of specialists working in an interdisciplinary way, with the client or patient actively involved in all stages of the process. This book will be essential reading for students preparing for practice in an increasingly interprofessional environment, and will be of interest to any health care practitioner keen to understand how an integrated approach to rehabilitation can benefit their clients.
