A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental HealthA wealth of valuable information is provided by 26 creative clinicians in this compilation, which successfully conveys the needs and therapeutic experiences of deaf people from different groups who have a variety of problems. Fundamental ideas on the special dynamics of therapy with deaf clients are presented, including the need for interpreters, deaf people's views of mental health services and the interaction of deaf therapists with the deaf community. Specific therapeutics issues are dealt with, including those arising from women's issues, sexual orientation, parenting of hearing children, minority group and immigrant status, HIV/AIDS diagnoses, sexual abuse victimization, chemical dependency, developmental delays, and psychiatric diagnoses. Extensive references are provided for each chapter. The writers' dedication to the learning and coordination necessary in therapy with deaf people will inspire all clinicians. For those working with deaf populations, this book is a necessary resource.
