It explores issues that are central to rehabilitation, such as the nature of the body, the idea of independence, the rehabilitation process, evidence-based practice and client-centred practice. Seeking always to ground theoretical ideas in the realities of every-day rehabilitation practice, and drawing from a wealth of research evidence, the book continually examines the implications of these perspectives for the education, practice, service delivery, research and theoretical development of the rehabilitation professions.Table of Contents
"I would say this book is a must-read for anyone working in the rehabilitation sector...This textbook is full of interesting titbits of information and insights - with a great many links for those wishing to pursue further reading on these topics. Hammell’s writing - which is well laid out and easy to read - will be assessable for those unfamiliar with the territory, but of equal interest to ‘experts’ in the field. Definitely worth a look."

"It presents a wealth of food for thought on rehabilitation practice. It is aimed at students, practitioners, educators and researchers in rehabilitation fields and, whilst it won’t tell anyone ‘how’ to practise, it is an essential read on the important underpinning considerations of practice."
