Book Reviews

"Promoting and protecting the human rights of our fellow citizens with disabilities is one of the most fundamentally important aspects of our work as professionals and advocates. This book provides a great resource to guide individuals and committees as they build effective practices to safeguard against the use of overly restrictive practices. Tabor and Baker present a range of practical strategies and approaches to ensure due process and strengthen the effectiveness of your Human Rights Committee."

- Tina Campanella - CEO

Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities

“Every Human Rights Committee member needs to be provided with a copy of Human Rights Committees: From Compliance to Cultural Commitment to enhance their understanding of the history and importance of the HRC. This book is an invaluable tool for assisting the HRC to organize and function in a way that upholds its values and mission–to assure the rights and well-being of the individuals they support. The resources and tools the book offers will assist any HRC. I would, and frequently have, recommended providers purchase it for their HRC members."

“This book, now in its fourth iteration, remains the quintessential blueprint for establishing HRCs, executing the function, and enfranchising all stakeholders to protect human dignity and fundamental rights. From its historical backdrop to the step-by-step recipe for designing an effective HRC, this book is the “go-to” resource for all persons engaged in the complex world of health care and service provision for the mentally challenged and disabled.”

"In Human Rights Committees: From Compliance to Cultural Commitment, Amy Tabor provides an exemplary guide pertaining to the development and implementation of a Human Rights Committee. A broad range of organizations providing services to people with developmental and/or physical disabilities will find that the book offers all the information needed to support those they serve with dignity and respect. 

Amy Tabor has helped Volunteers of America implement the Human Rights Committee concept, and we are better for her personal touch."

"This timely update of Human Rights committees not only adds new tools for practitioners but also should be on the reading lists for students planning for careers in the field of disability services."
