Summary
"Advances in available treatment for conditions such as spina bifida and hydrocephalus plus shifts in society's attitudes mean that disabled people are increasingly able to lead more normal lives. Enabling them to fulfil their sexual needs is therefore now an important poart of nursing care. This book increases professional awareness, sensitivity to and knowledge of the issues surrounding disability and sexuality, in particular spina bifida and hydrocephalus. It provides practical guidance for professionals who find themselves in the difficult position of supporting and advising disabled people in an area still regarded as one of the great taboos of modern society. Sexuality and Disability covers important topics such as body image and self-esteem, adolescence, genetics, continence, abuse, legal matters and ethics. Emphasis is on physical problems and their associated psychological consequences. Case histories provide personal insights." -- BOOK JACKET
