Product Description:

This is a book about two people who are introduced by friends. Mike and Janet get on well and enjoy doing things together. They decide they want to live together, but initially their families try to discourage them. This love story traces the ups and downs of their relationship, until they are able to make a commitment to each other.

Readers can identify with Mike and Janet, and use the book as a starting point to explore their own relationships, and the role of families, friends and carers in supporting them.

The Books Beyond Words series is now well established and used in a variety of health and social care settings. Together with the earlier publications Hug Me, Touch Me and Making Friends, Falling in Love can be seen to complete a pictorial trilogy on the overlapping themes of sexual, social and intimate relationships of people with learning disabilities. The Department of Psychiatry of Disability at St George’s Hospital Medical School is widely recognized for its interest and expertise in issues of interpersonal relationships in people with learning disabilities. This book reflects the department’s philosophy of incorporating service users perspectives in clinical developments and making research findings accessible to those who are meant to benefit from it.
