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.
