Beschreibungen

<p>People with intellectual disabilities are particularly vulnerable to sexual abuse, and offering them psychological support at the earliest possible moment greatly increases their ability to cope with the event and return to daily life. This book provides a complete, structured, evidence-based programme for providing this help to survivors of sexual abuse with developmental disabilities, both adults and children. <br><br>Step-by-step session plans, as well as comprehensive background information and downloadable worksheets, provide the means by which to offer effective help to clients and recover their feelings of safety and trust. Sessions are also included for helping parents and caregivers to cope with their own reactions and emotions on the discovery of the abuse. Each session is adaptable for the needs of people with severe, moderate and mild intellectual disabilities in order to provide exceptional care to every individual who needs it.</p>
Based upon years of experience and research, the SOS programme is the essential first step for enabling people with intellectual disabilities who have experienced sexual abuse to recover from the trauma. This is a vital resource filled with ready-to-use, practical tools for supporting these people, their families and caregivers.
