      Maltreatment of People With Intellectual and Developm...

      This comprehensive and compelling work presents research and evidence-based strategies related to the maltreatment of people with IDD across the lifespan. Using the public health framework that moves from surveillance to screening to intervention to policy implications, this volume presents research in a life-course perspective separated into three sections: IDD in Early Life, Adults With IDD, and Interventions for People With IDD. Together  they emphasize the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration to better serve and provide for people with IDD.

      Eleven chapters present research, strategies, interventions, and approaches in the key areas involved in the understanding, treatment, and prevention of maltreatment of people with IDD throughout their lives:

      • A systematic review of the literature on the association between childhood disability and child maltreatment
      • Sexual trauma in children and adolescents with IDD
      • Effects of the bullying of youth with IDD
      • Heightened social vulnerability among adults with IDD
      • Removing reproductive, sexual, and child-rearing rights of women with IDD
      • Relationships and social networks among a sample of mothers with IDD
      • Victimization risk of older adults with ID manifesting later in life
      • Prevention of maltreatment of adults with IDD
      • Systemic change in services for parents with intellectual and other cognitive disabilities
      • Post-injury monitoring of abusive head trauma
      • Discriminatory killing and execution of people with IDD
      Designed for policymakers, researchers, clinicians, and students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, this resource provides an in-depth look at the knowledge base in addressing the maltreatment of these vulnerable populations.

      • Disability and Public Health – OUT OF STOCK

        Public health professionals have had few opportunities to learn about disability in a public health context. Now Disability and Public Health provides a thorough roadmap to professionals and describes how disability complements a public health context. By promoting an understanding of disability, the book provides a basis for enhancing the success of all of public health initiatives.

        “This text will most certainly become a cornerstone for building a public health discipline that will help to develop a more comprehensive approach to understanding the ecology of health disparities for people with disabilities and strategies to improve access to affordable, quality health care.”  Leslie Rubin, M.D., Emory University

        “Disability and Public Health is an important and overdue contribution to the core curriculum of disability studies in public health education. With its broad cross-disability and consumer-centric focus, nothing quite like this book of readings has been published, to my knowledge, with a public health
        perspective. This is a thought-provoking and enlightening book for students, faculty, administrators, and service providers in public health and for the disability-related clinical professions.” David Braddock, Ph.D., Associate Vice President, University of Colorado System

        Topics covered by the book:

        • History and culture of disability
        • Advocacy and the role of government and public policy in disability
        • Disability epidemiology
        • Disparities and determinants of disability
        • Models of approach to disability
        • Disability and health promotion
        • Disaster preparedness
