About this product
- DescriptionFew people are fully aware of the psychological and sociological implications of different types of deafness, or of the problems of deaf people with disabilities, and few members of the caring professions have any training in this field. This clear, practical book, by one of the world's leading psychiatrists in work with deaf people, outlines the nature of the different kinds of deafness and covers both clinical and service aspects of working with deaf people. The book includes many illustrative examples, and is written t only for professionals in the mental health field, but also for all those whose work brings them into contact with deaf children and adults. Because deafness is t a 'visible' problem, it is often difficult to take account of the problems that deaf people face, and this book will be of particular use in helping to understand better the nature of deafness and to recognise mental disorder.
- Author BiographyJohn C. Denmark, FRCPsych, is Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist at the John Denmark Unit, Mental Health Services of Salford NHS Trust (formerly Prestwich Hospital). He was the first to develop psychiatric services for deaf people in the United Kingdom.
