2nd edition. [First Published: 1980] From the cover: “The first edition of this book, published in 1980 as Behaviour Modification for the Mentally Handicapped, became established as a major work on this subject. Since its publication, however, many new developments have taken place in both theoretical and clinical psychology. The second edition has therefore been completely rewritten to take account of these. There is also additional discussion of ethical issues and an increased emphasis on the person with a mental handicap as an individual who is often quite capable of independent living. The book should therefore continue to represent a current and comprehensive overview of this subject for psychologists, nurses, teachers and rehabilitation staff working with people with such handicaps..”
