The book is appropriate for all staff supporting people with mental health needs, people with a learning or physical disability, older people and people with dementia.This workbook is a valuable source of guidance for any social care worker keen to improve their practice, and represents a cost-effective way for managers or trainers in residential and domiciliary settings to train staff.
