Seminars in the Psychiatry of Learning Disabilities (second edition) is an informative and readable textbook that provides a comprehensive overview of the field in one volume. It is both a revision and an expansion of the first edition, published in 1997. The field of learning disability has advanced very rapidly, with changes in the climate of caring, diagnostic categories and concepts and our understanding of the diverse causes of learning disability. This second edition contains several new chapters incorporating accounts of the psychological treatment of behavioural problems, consent and capacity, the underlying causes of learning disability and molecular genetics. Existing challenges facing learning disability specialists are also highlighted, including physical health needs, communication between professionals and those with learning disabilities and the organisation of comprehensive health care. * Ideal for those in specialist training, or those seeking a more general understanding of learning disabilities. * Topics explained in accessible, tutorial-style chapters. * Comprehensive coverage of the subject in a single volume.
