A Jenny Job

release date: Nov 06, 2021
A Jenny Job
They thought I''d be rubbish because I''m "only a woman". But I thought: "I''ll have you." Jenny Webb - a pioneer in the male-dominated electrical industry for decades, face and voice of the industry on TV, radio and at national and international events, writer of a string of hugely successful books on microwave cookery and electrical appliances, star of her own retro YouTube channel and hostess of countless, faultlessly-executed dinner parties at her West London home! Each of her accomplishments - professional, social or culinary - a perfect example of a "Jenny Job". For the first time, Jenny has captured her memoirs, adventures and occasional misadventures, putting them on record and sharing the fascinating story of her life to-date, from her early experiences as a wartime child in London, her school days and first steps on the career ladder, how she took the industry by storm from the 60s onwards, ultimately helping it to adapt to the new world of privatisation, before setting off into the sunset for a well-earned - and often far-flung - retirement. Jenny''s story is as inspiring and engaging as the woman herself.

A Guide to Psychological Understanding of People with Learning Disabilities

release date: Jul 31, 2013
A Guide to Psychological Understanding of People with Learning Disabilities
Who are the people we describe as having learning or intellectual disability? Many clinical psychologists working in a mental health setting are now encountering people with learning disabilities, in some cases for the first time. This book provides the background information and understanding required to provide a basis for a truly inclusive and effective service for people with learning disability. In A Guide to Psychological Understanding of People with Learning Disabilities, Jenny Webb argues that we need a new, clinically-based definition of learning disability and an approach which integrates scientific rigour with humanistic concern for this group of people, who are so often vulnerable to misunderstanding and marginalisation. Psychological approaches need to be grounded in an understanding of historical, theoretical and ethical influences as well as a body of knowledge from other disciplines. The Eight Domains is a simple but holistic method for information gathering, while The Three Stories is an integrative model of formulation for use in relation for those people whose needs do not fit neatly into any one theory. Divided into three sections, the book explores: Understanding the context Understanding the person: eight domains Making sense: three stories. This book provides an invaluable guide for trainee clinical psychologists and their supervisors and tutors, working with adults with learning disability. It will also be valuable for clinical psychologists working in mainstream settings who may now be receiving referrals for people with learning disability and want to update their skills.
