From Reference & Research Book News

In this update of the groundbreaking 1999 edition, Leigh and contributors to 14 chapters further advance the trend away from equating deafness with pathology and the need for therapists to be just as culturally literate in working with culturally-identified Deaf clients as with those from other minority communities. Following chapters on ethical and consumer dimensions of psychotherapy with/by deaf people, new chapters discuss diverse interventions with these deaf populations: African Americans, Asian Americans, American Indians, Latinos, college students, the elderly, and recipients of cochlear implants. Others address issues in treating hearing children of deaf parents, and the deaf who are also gay/transgender, deaf-blind, survivors of sexual assault, chemically-dependent, or in dialectical behavior therapy.

Irene W. Leigh is Professor Emerita of Psychology at Gallaudet University.
