Social and Psychological Aspects of Applied Human Genetics: A Bibliography.
Sorenson, James R., Comp.
This bibliography is a selective compilation of books and articles which focus on the psychological and social issues of applied human genetics. It is centered in particular around problems, issues, and discussions of genetic counseling, the primary mechanism by which human genetics has been applied to date. It includes those entries which, on the basis of information conveyed in the title, appear to be primarily concerned with social and psychological issues of applied human genetics in general, and genetic counseling in particular. The articles and books are arranged according to subject matter, usually on the basis of information given in the title, occasionally on the basis of bibliographical source subject-heading. Division of subjects was determined primarily by the number of articles that seemed to have a common area of concern. This bibliography should be especially useful to social and behavioral scientists conducting research in this area, to social workers, to genetic counselors interested in the problems and perspectives of practicing the art and science of genetic counseling, and to other allied health professionals engaged in applying human genetics. The publication of this bibliography was sponsored by the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health because of its interest in the social and ethical aspects of research in human genetics and in the application of these research advances to medical care.
