'In Challenging Behaviour Emerson carefully defines his terms, sets the problem in the social context, and demonstrates a systematic approach to the analysis and treatment of behavioural pathology in this little understood aspect of learning difficulties ... and it has the great merit of being set against issues of quality of life.' British Medical Journal 'This well-written book provides a wide overview of challenging behavior in mentally retarded people covering the current findings on the nature, epidemiology, causes and treatment ... this is a good book and very essential reading for all health care professionals involved in the assessment and treatment of mentally retarded people.' Saudi Medical Journal
