Images of Possibility: Creating Learning Opportunities for Adults with Mental Health Difficulties

£4.99

Product description

This book, which is the product of a national survey of all further education colleges and local education authorities in England and Wales, explains how adult educators can create learning opportunities for adults with mental health difficulties. The chapter topics are as follows: setting the scene; labels applied to people with mental health difficulties; participation and empowerment; overcoming barriers to successful learning; making successful learning happen; building alliances; funding; access, guidance, and assessment; support for learning; accreditation and progress; and staff development and training. Each chapter identifies good practice in local education authority and college provision and describes innovative approaches and achievements of existing educational provision in meeting the learning needs of adults with mental health difficulties. All chapters end with a list of key themes and issues and a brief checklist of questions for organizations. A summary section emphasizes the importance of the following: inclusive, student-centred approach, awareness raising, range of learning opportunities, partnerships, funding, leadership, staff development, quality, and looking ahead. The book contains 67 references. Appended are the following: addresses of 15 useful organizations, text of those features of the Disability Discrimination Act of 1995 that are relevant to further education, list of case study institutions and survey questionnaire.

Excellent pages, some edge and cover wear. EX-Library so a couple of pieces of book furniture.
