Counseling with Deaf People.
Sussman, Allen E., Ed.; Stewart, Larry G., Ed.
The book presents information on effective counseling with deaf people by discussing issues that confront counselors and administrators involved in providing counseling services to deaf people. A basic assumption of the book is that deaf people of all ages have been frequently denied counseling services due to communication problems between counselor and deaf client. Examined first by Boyce R. Williams and Allen E. Sussman are the psychological and social ramifications of deafness in the individual's personal, social, and vocational adjustment and development. Then McCay Vernon points out the current status of counseling with deaf people. In their analysis of principles of counseling with deaf people, C.H. Patterson and Larry G. Stewart offer excerpts from four different counseling sessions with four different deaf clients in order to demonstrate successful communication and counseling. Next, Richard W. Thoreson and Norman L. Tully explain the role and functions of the counselor with deaf people. The last discussion, by John F. McGowan and Geno M. Vescovi, is concerned with selection, education, and training of rehabilitation counselors in general and counselors of the deaf in particular. (CB)
