Working from the premise that the lives of people with learning disabilities are of innate value, and that exploring and celebrating people's experiences demonstrates their value in a practical way, this book provides a manual on working with memories in groups and individually. It includes: a clear rationale for and guidance on the benefits of this approach; good practice guidelines for memory work; a chapter on life story work with individuals; a section on working with those with learning disabilities and dementia; ideas for dozens of activities on 15 themes associated with memories of the past, including - the childhood years; food, cooking and shopping; days out and holidays; fashions, clothing and looking good; and, hobbies, interests and work experience.
