People with learning difficulties are considerably more likely to experience sexual violence than those without, and for this reason they are often described as 'vulnerable'. This book argues that treating adults with learning difficulties as 'vulnerable' leaves them with fewer of the skills which are needed to protect themselves from harm.

People with learning difficulties are considerably more likely to experience sexual violence than non-disabled people, and for this reason they are often described as 'vulnerable'. However, the use of this label can in fact increase risk. This book argues that by seeing adults with learning difficulties as vulnerable and in need of protection, they are stripped of their autonomy and left with fewer skills that are needed to protect themselves from harm. Their different treatment, such as segregation and over-protection, can in fact increase their 'vulnerability'. The author discusses a range of social processes, such as sex education, self-determination, friendships, sexual relationships and social inclusion, and examines the risk and benefits associated with each. Drawing on the everyday experiences of 29 adults with learning difficulties, the author illustrates how people with learning difficulties can be capable of safeguarding themselves from harm, and makes a range of suggestions for enabling them to become better equipped at managing risk themselves. This book will be essential reading for practitioners working with people with learning difficulties, as well as students and academics in the fields of disability and social work.

Policy makers and practitioners have frequently overlooked the importance of relationships for people with learning difficulties, and same-sex relationships have been given even less consideration. Secret loves, hidden lives? draws on first-hand accounts to explore the lives of gay, lesbian and bisexual people with learning difficulties. The views and experiences of staff in a range of learning disability services are also featured in the study. Based on a three-year, qualitative research project carried out across the UK, the report describes people's experiences of 'coming out', relationships, discrimination and abuse. It also looks at responses from staff and services, meeting other lesbian, gay and bisexual people, and dreams for the future. Staff also reflect on these issues and discuss the importance of policy, training and creating services that promote cultures of equality. Secret loves, hidden lives? is aimed primarily at people who plan and deliver services for people with learning difficulties and the staff who work directly with them. Growing awareness of the relevance of Human Rights legislation for people with learning difficulties makes this study particularly important and timely. The findings will also be of interest to researchers and academics with a background in disability, sexuality and equality/diversity issues.
