Review

This book should be read by all therapists and counsellors, even if in the course of their lives they never encounter a person who is deaf ... `The deaf challenge' is the challenge facing everyone who would be a counsellor. -- From the foreword by Dorothy Rowe `a challenge to all those in the social service field to provide effective and efficient counseling services to the Deaf community - Counselling - The Deaf Challenge provides thoughtful and informative deliberations - This book has many strengths. First, it is extremely comprehensive. Topics covered include deaf culture, accessibility issues, counseling process, treatment strategies, counselor-client alliances, the use of an interpreter, and counselor training. Corker provides especially thorough and informative discussions of both process issues and the use of art and drama therapy with deaf clients. Second, the book is compelling. Firsthand accounts of the counseling experience from a hearing counselor, a deaf counselor, and two deaf clients personalize and clarify the more theoretical writings. Third, the book is practical. For every abstract goal the author sets forth, she also provides a list of concrete steps to take to meet the given objective - Overall, Cousnelling - The Deaf Challenge is both an informative and compelling book. Given our moral and legal obligation as counselors, to be able to competently treat our clients, deaf as well as hearing, it is also essential reading.' -- Contemporary Psychology `Mairian Corker's book fills an important gap in the literature on this subject ... the book provides a unique resource for all professionals, both deaf and hearing, who work with deaf people ... it includes some case studies and offers captivating insight into the world of deafness in a clear and illustrative fashion ... This is essential reading for counsellors and other professionals who work with disabled people, particulary deaf people.' -- British Journal of Visual Impairment `This is a significant and interesting book. .. I recommend this book to those who are interested in deaf issues, not just in terms of counselling, but in a more general sense. It challenges assumptions about deaf people, deafness and the relationship between deaf and hearing people and it exposes taken for granted assumptions about the role of language in relationships in a way that demands consideration...It is an important book and should be essential reading for anyone embarking on counselling deaf people.' -- Deafness: The Journal of the Sociology of Deafness `I would recommend this book to readers ... I gained much useful information from this book about cultural differences and possible misunderstandings in counsellor-client relationships ... a well-structured, informative book.' -- BATOD: British Association of the Teacher of the Deaf Ms Corker is a trained and experienced counsellor who works with both deaf and hearing clients ... the book makes useful reading - providing clear insights into deaf culture and the experiences of deaf people. It would be a useful addition to the library ... In every chapter, Ms Corker develops her discussion of the power relationship between hearing and deaf people. She is in a unique position to do this - being deaf herself, and yet trained by, and working within, the `hearing world'.' -- Bulletin, Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists
