Drawing upon some of the leading clinicians, teachers, administrators, and researchers in this field from the United States and Great Britain, it addresses critical issues from this specialty such as

Deaf/hearing cross cultural dynamics as they impact treatment organizations

Clinical and interpreting work with deaf persons with widely varying language abilities

Adaptations of best practices in inpatient, residential, trauma, and substance abuse treatment for deaf persons

Overcoming administrative barriers to establishing statewide continua of care

University training of clinical specialists

The interplay of clinical and forensic responses to deaf people who commit crimes

An agenda of priorities for Deaf mental health research

Each chapter contains numerous clinical case studies and places a heavy emphasis on providing practical intervention strategies in an interesting, easy to read style.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The group of authors brought together to create Deaf Mental Health Care consists of remarkable writers, researchers, and treatment providers. This text provides a multifaceted review of the past, present, and future of deaf mental health services through a clinical and cultural context. Deaf Mental Health Care is a must read for clinicians and practitioners serving individuals who are deaf. It is certainly a comprehensive, informative, educational, and timely clinical compilation of the history, current needs, and future directions of mental health care for individuals who are deaf. Each chapter is a well-crafted, succinct review of a particular topic, providing a coherent context of best practices and services within a culturally competent framework that can easily be followed and hopefully adopted by treatment providers." - Jill M. Meyer, PsycCritiques

"Deaf Mental Health Care, draws on the experitse and experience of respected American and British clinicans and educators... Deaf Mental Health Care, well written and comprehensive, is laudable in its unique focus on deaf persons who have experience language deprivation and its sequelae. The book recognizes the contributions of and challenges faced by deaf professionals." - Judy Mounty, Sign Language Studies

"Most textbooks on mental health overwhelm readers with research. However, Deaf Mental Health is able to strike a comfortable balance between research and practice. Chapters appear to be written with an emphasis on practitioners as consumers of this text. Thus, the work is not only easy to read, it is truly difficult to put down. The book is an essential text for clinicians working in the field who interact with deaf clients and patients. Furthermore, it contains enough research that it could be used as text in university courses on mental health care with deaf people." -Gabriel I. Lomas, PhD., Western Connecticut State University, JADARA

"Deaf Mental Health Care is by far the best, most comprehensive and objective book on the psychological aspects of deafness I have read during my 58 years of working as a psychologist in the field of deafness." - McCay Vernon, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, McDaniel College

"In his much anticipated book, the gifted Dr. Neil Glickman and his extraordinary collaborators have set the new standard for excellence in understanding and delivering culturally affirmative, linguistically accessible Deaf mental health care. It is important reading for all stakeholders in Deaf mental health care. I strongly recommend this book to you." - Bill McCrone, EdD, Professor Emeritus (Counseling) and Dean, School of Education & Human Services (1995-2001), Gallaudet University

"Glickman has spent his career workign with Language and Language Challenged (LLC) deaf individuals and here he shares his knowledge and expertise with the rest of us in the field of deaf mental health. In this book, he gathers together 17 national experts in mental health with deaf persons to address topics of relevance to the work we do and the clients wie serve. Each of the 10 chapters is written with great sensitivity given to Deaf experiences, thinking, and worldview... [This] text addresses sensitive, often hidden, issues related to deaf/hearing cross-cultural dynamics, partnernships, and power imbalances inherent in the work we do. I was excited reading this book... This book helps us understand our deaf LLC clients and gives us strategies to work effectively with them--a demanding task in itself. More importantly it gives us insight into the minds and hearts of our co-workers and team members, raises our self-awareness, and challenges us to do better... This is one book that should be on the shelves of each clinician, administrator, trainer, and interpreter who works in deaf mental health." - Linda Risser Lytle, Department of Counseling, Gallaudet University, Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education
