A human rights perspective on reducing restrictive practices in intellectual disability and autism

Edited by Sam Karim

This book explores the importance of human rights legislation and ethical decision making on reducing the use of restrictive practices when supporting people with an intellectual disability and people with autism.

Examples are given of how legislation, case law and guidance have been used in England, Wales, Australia and North America to uphold people’s rights and challenge abusive practices.

Chapters included in the book:

  • Legal reflections on the human rights of
    restraint reduction 
  • The importance of safeguarding rights and the role of legislation: the Australian perspective
  • Ethical principles and good practice in reducing restrictive practices
  • Replacing restraint: good practices in North American human service programmes for persons with intellectual disabilities and autism
  • Good practices in Australia in the use of
    restraint reduction practices for people with intellectual disabilities and autism


"Essential reading for those working in many areas within the field of intellectual disability and challenging behaviour, to ensure the safe, legal and least-restrictive support for those accessing services." 
Dr Shona Daynes, Clinical Psychologist
Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
