W is for Woman

  • Valerie Sinason


This chapter is an account of work with one woman with a learning disability, which, I hope, highlights some universal issues that are relevant to work with both men and women in this client group. I have the permission of Ms ‘Rita Atir’ to give an account of our time together and have changed all names and some other details to ensure her privacy. ‘Atir’ is ‘Rita’ back to front and, for reasons that will become clear, I wanted to provide her with a last name.
