Counselling- The Deaf Challenge


This book is the first to explore the cultural, linguistic and educational challenge presented by deaf people to traditional, broad-based humanistic counselling theory and practice which hinges on the ability to `hear’ and to `listen’.
Case studies and dialogues from deaf counsellors and clients working within and across cultural and linguistic boundaries are included, and also practical exercises for use in training and developing awareness. The book is base on a lifetime’s growth of deaf experience and identity and fifteen years of research and practice of counselling in health, education and voluntary sector settings. It is a unique resource for all professionals, both deaf and hearing, who work with deaf people, and to those who are interested in discovering the positive contribution made by `the deaf challenge’ to counselling.
