Overview

Challenging behaviours such as aggression and violence are more common in deaf people than hearing people. The assumption that being deaf inevitably leads to an increase in such behaviours is strongly challenged by exploring the avoidable causal factors.

Multi-disciplinary professionals with specialist knowledge of working with deaf people explore aspects of mild to severe challenging behaviour with reference to its cause, assessment, prevention and management.

This book will be of relevance to professionals and careers involved in the delivery of actual and potential aggression management in the fields of:

  • Mental health
  • Education
  • Learning disability
  • Speech and language therapy
  • Prison and forensic services
  • Audiology
  • Nursing

International contributors, providing a wealth of easily accessible knowledge, consider this extremely heterogeneous group from neuro-psychological, cognitive-behavioural, socio-political, service-user, psychodynamic and systemic perspectives.

Deafness and Challenging Behaviour: The 360° Perspective aims to stimulate debate in contentious areas such as restraint practices and human rights, whilst bridging gaps in the application of culturally cogent service provision for the deaf communities. Special emphasis is placed in the needs of deaf sign language users.
