Overview

This innovative new publication is a valuable resource for all those involved in the care and rehabilitation of people with disabilities. A unique feature of the book is its integration of the concepts and principles of rehabilitation with good clinical practice. The text encompasses a wealth of material from a broad range of perspectives including social and educational aspects, good management practice, audit evaluation research, and statistics. It deals with physical and intellectual disabilities and spans childhood disability and disablement and rehabilitation in later life and old age. This broad-based but scientifically informed book recognizes that breadth of expertise is needed to adequately assess the needs of people with disabilities and to establish appropriate strategies for their treatment.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robert J. Hartke, PhD, MPH (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This is a collection of readings on the psychosocial aspects of disability and research in rehabilitation, written by rehabilitation specialists from the United Kingdom. Medical treatment of disabling conditions is only peripherally included.
Purpose: The book's unclear goal is to enlarge and deepen the reader's understanding of the process of rehabilitation. While the range of topics covered may enhance the reader's knowledge of rehabilitation, the field is not reviewed in depth.
Audience: The book is for medical students and other healthcare professionals. It assumes some healthcare background and is more accurately directed to readers interested in psychosocial aspects of rehabilitation. The authors are rehabilitation specialists from clinical, academic, and community settings.
Features: The book's perspective on rehabilitation practices in the United Kingdom is unique. The book suffers from a lack of organization and focus. Chapters are inconsistently organized. The first chapter serves as an introduction, but does not adequately focus the reader or set a tone for the subsequent readings. The book underutilizes illustration as an alternative means of organizing material. References are included at the end of each chapter and vary in their coverage of the area. In some instances, suggestions for further reading are provided.
Assessment: This book is of average quality, due to its lack of focus. The title is misleading, as the reader expects a more comprehensive treatment of the field of rehabilitation. The largely psychosocial focus of the topics also misses major areas, such as family coping, sexuality, and personal account by persons with disability. The editors appear authoritative in their areas and the text offers the unique perspective of the United Kingdom. For these reasons, this reviewer would only recommend the book to a library with a more specialized collection of works in the rehabilitation field.
