This article explores how internalised-other interviewing may be employed as an action method for reconnecting with the psychological reality of those at risk of having their psychological reality denied. Th e focus of the article is people with a label of ‘intellectual disabilities’ referred to specialist teams for ‘challenging behaviours’. I have chosen to use this internationally recognised term, employed by the International Association for the Study of Intellectual Disabilities. The self-advocacy organisation, ‘People First’, prefers the use of the term learning difficulties (not to be confused with specific educational learning difficulties as used in the UK). However internalised-other interviewing used in this way may be applicable to others who are at risk of exclusion.
