Counseling Persons With Communication Disorders and Their Families is a seminal work that has become a standard text in counseling courses within the field of communication disorders. In this seventh edition, David Luterman provides a personal and professional history of counseling education, beginning with a new overview chapter that includes a definition of counseling, with the goal of empowering clients.
New to this edition are updates on relevant counseling literature and a new section on the counseling relationship and counseling difficult clients. A theoretical basis for the counseling model is presented, as well as many practical suggestions for the student or practicing clinician to increase their skills in clinical settings.
