The present paper describes an intervention based upon a cognitive/behavioural teaching approach with a group of five adults with learning disabilities. The intervention addresses a number of issues raised by other authors regarding the implementation of such programmes. These issues are described and a plan explaining the main elements of the training course is included. The findings made during implementation are discussed and a number of points raised by the intervention are considered. The present authors conclude with their hope that this work will encourage further research into the use of cognitive behavioural interventions with people with learning disabilities.
