Description

Written for graduate-level counseling in audiology or audiologic management courses.

Founded on evidence-based practice and replete with instructive vignettes this book provides a hands-on, practical guide to a patient-centered approach to audiologic treatment.

Premised on the long-held belief that patient success in all areas of healthcare is greatest when the practitioner’s interpersonal skills are fully developed, this practical new guide to audiologic rehabilitation presents counseling principles that lead to an enhanced appreciation for and understanding of the audiologist’s fundamental role in helping patients.  The text focuses on emphasizing the humanistic side of audiology through a personal adjustment counseling approach, along with clear descriptions, and frequent demonstration through vignettes of day-to-day application of counseling and hearing rehabilitation principles. Appropriate as a main text for the graduate counseling course for audiologists, the non-technical nature of this text makes it the right fit for a practically-focused approach to teaching the sometimes elusive principles of audiologic rehabilitation in the undergraduate rehabilitation class for speech-language pathology and audiology students.
