"Without doubt, Psychological Therapies for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities is the best book available at present on this topic. The editors and contributors are all leading experts in their field, which has resulted in a book that should be standard for practitioners, researchers and students working with people with intellectual disabilities and mental health problems."
—Prof. Dr. Robert Didden, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands
"The book gives a thorough account of the current state of science in psychological therapies for people with learning disabilities and outlines a plausible way forward for clinicians and researchers to develop a stronger evidence base for such interventions. The chapters on lesser known interventions, e.g. mindfulness were very useful and informative. The authors are all well-known experts and have presented the material persuasively and with clarity."
—Angela Hassiotis, Reader in Psychiatry of Intellectual Disabilities, Mental Health Sciences Unit, Faculty of Brain Sciences, University College London
