Many people suffer from feelings of stress and anxiety in their everyday lives. For people with Asperger Syndrome (AS), this stress can be particularly difficult to manage.

The word 'partnership' is often used to describe the relationship between health and social care providers and service users, but in reality this can appear to be empty rhetoric. Stakeholders may fulfil their obligations and use the language of service user involvement while traditional attitudes and practice remain unchanged. This inspiring book sets out how to make true partnership work. Built around the stories of real partnerships and written collaboratively with service users groups and individuals, it introduces the concept of 'growing spaces' where people can pool ideas, energy, skills and experience, resulting in joint effort and mutual reward. All the stages of making a partnership work are covered, starting with the growing conditions needed and how to sow the first seeds. Developing 'green shoots', which include confidence and trust, and signs of 'sickness', such as fear of speaking out, are discussed. The grassroots experiences which lay at the heart of the book exhibit an array of different forms of partnership and dispersal of good practice in action. This unique book will be essential reading for students and practitioners in health and social care, service users, as well as anyone involved in service user involvement and community development.

In Be Different, New York Times bestselling author of Look Me in the Eye shares a new batch of endearing stories about his childhood, adolescence, and young adult years, giving the reader a rare window into the Autistic mind. In his bestselling memoir, Look Me in the Eye, John Elder Robison described growing up with Autism Spectrum Disorder at a time when the diagnosis didn’t exist. He was intelligent but socially isolated; his talents won him jobs with toy makers and rock bands but did little to endear him to authority figures and classmates, who were put off by his inclination to blurt out non sequiturs and avoid eye contact. By the time he was diagnosed at age forty, John had already developed a myriad of coping strategies that helped him achieve a seemingly normal, even highly successful, life. In each story, he offers practical advice for anyone who feels “different” on how to improve the weak communication and social skills that keep so many people from taking full advantage of their often remarkable gifts. With his trademark honesty and unapologetic eccentricity, Robison addresses questions like: • How to read others and follow their behaviors when in uncertain social situations • Why manners matter • How to harness your powers of concentration to master difficult skills • How to deal with bullies • When to make an effort to fit in, and when to embrace eccentricity • How to identify special gifts and use them to your advantage Every person has something unique to offer the world, and every person has the capacity to create strong, loving bonds with their friends and family. Be Different will help readers and those they love find their path to success.
