This book introduces the important topic of safeguarding people with a learning disability from abuse. It identifies different types of abuse and the possible signs and symptoms that might indicate that abuse has occurred. It explores why people with a learning disability might be more vulnerable to abuse and what the reader must do if abuse is suspected or alleged.
This book puts the person with a learning disability at the centre of the support you give. It uses real life stories, activities and thinking points to cover all of the learning outcomes and is full of practical examples of how to apply the ideas to the support that you provide.
The book is designed to support the Level 2 and 3 Diplomas in Health and Social Care (learning disability pathway) and the Common Induction Standards and in particular:
Level 2 - Principles of safeguarding and protection in health and social care
If you are starting work with people with a learning disability and are undertaking your induction, studying for the level 2 or 3 diplomas in health and social care, or you want the right information to help your personal development, then Principles of safeguarding and protection for learning disability workers is for you.
'Easy to read. The activities and thinking points are really good.'
