Challenging behaviours that are encountered daily in various care settings exact tremendous social costs – most significantly to individual service providers. The focus of Managing Aggressive Behaviour in Care Settings is to provide care givers with helpful guidance and the practical skills necessary to manage these aggressive behaviors. Andrew A. McDonnell, a practicing Clinical Psychologist and specialist in the field of autism, traces the development and evaluation of the Low Arousal Approach, a non-aversive training system that has been successfully utilized in the treatment of aggressive behavior. Throughout this important volume, McDonnell reveals how practical applications of low arousal methods may be implemented in care environments that include interactions with clients with intellectual disabilities, autism, and various mental health issues, from children to the elderly. Managing Aggressive Behavior in Care Settings offers invaluable insights into a non-confrontational approach that can provide great benefits to patients, carers, and staff alike.
