Speech Pathology in Cultural and Linguistic Diversity
This book explores the intricate relationship between culture and communication before moving on to intercultural health care, including a detailed look at perception of illness and disability. Two chapters on intercultural speech pathology look at clinical practice, including culturally-focussed assessment and management approaches. Interpreter-mediated speech pathology is covered in detail, including an overview of the process of interpreting, debate on professional versus untrained interpreters, discussion of pre-session briefing, a look at potential barriers to the interpretation process and introduction to a collaborative partnership model for working with interpreters. The final chapter explores the author's thoughts on the future directions in research and education in the field of intercultural and interpreter-mediated speech pathology. The book provides a comprehensive and practical insight into intercultural and interpreter-mediated speech pathology. With its easy to read and practical content, it should be of significant use to undergraduate students and qualified speech-language pathologists new to multicultural/multilingual contexts. However, it would also be suitable for experienced clinicians who find themselves tackling the challenges of intercultural speech pathology everyday.

Developmental Speech Disorders
This book looks at the major changes that have occurred in the theory and practice of speech therapy for children with developmental speech disorders. It looks at current issues and their clinical implications, but the overall aim of the book is to set clinical practice firmly in a theoretical framework. While it is therefore essentially a practical book for practitioners, it also engages in the academic investigation of the nature of the different types of developmental speech disorders and their consequences for the children. This discussion provides the framework in which to consider clinical management and specific clinical techniques. A recurrent theme throughout each chapter is the impact of linguistics upon our understanding and management of childrena s problems in learning to pronounce. There is no doubt that the linguistic revolution in speech and language pathology has produced an entirely new perspective on these disorders by identifying the phonological dimension of speech development. Of equal importance is the expansion of knowledge about childrena s language development. Much more information is now available about phonological development in terms of what the developmental changes are and when they occur. This information is valuable in assessment and diagnosis. The book also includes a number of competing theories explaining how children develop their pronunciation patterns. These theories provide the premises upon which to establish a principled theory of therapy. To reflect these issues and their clinical implications the book is divided into three sections. The first section explores the framework within which to discuss developmental speech disorders. The second section covers three specific types of pathological conditions with which developmental speech disorders are associated. The third section examines the problems of children who have no evident major disabling condition and yet they experience severe difficulties learning to pronounce and subsequently, more often than not, learning to read and write.

Time to Talk: Parent's Accounts of Children's Speech Difficulties
Time to Talk is about the experience of having a child with early difficulties in learning to talk. It is based on the accounts of the parents of 20 children who took part in a research project, evaluating the effectiveness of community-based speech and language therapy for pre-school children. The book aims to provide infromation for parents and professionals working with young children about the difficulties that may arise in their speech and language development. It also explores how referral to speech and language may be undertaken and describes what attendance at speech and language therapy may entail. While the focus throughout the book is on the parents' responses to their children's difficulties and the therapy process they underwent, the parents' accounts are supplemented with information from other research carried out in the field of early speech and language delays.

Communication Disability in the Dementias
This book focuses on language and communication issues with older people with mental health problems. Radically revised and updated from the authors' earlier book, Communication Disability and the Psychiatry of Old Age , this book recognizes that language and communication is not just the business of speech and language therapy, but is relevant to all staff involved with people who have mental health difficulties. It focuses on what older people with mental health difficulties require to maintain their independence and to minimize the effects of degenerative disease processes for as long as possible from a speech and language perspective. It is relevant to all members of the multidisciplinary team involved within older people's mental health services. Each chapter is evidence based and factual and reflects the substantial advances in the diagnosis and treatment of dementias.

Research Methods in Communication Disorders
Many communication disorders are poorly understood and many treatments used in therapy remain unproven. Speech and Language therapists are increasingly involved in research in these areas but may lack the training and experience required to conduct it. Not the least of their problems is that few textbooks discuss the specific problems of research design in communication disorders. Research Methods in Speech and Language Therapy fills this gap. It will serve as an introductory text for students who are training to be therapists and as an introduction to more advanced methods for clinicians involved in research. Different approaches to research are described and the basic principles of research design and statistical analysis described. The book uses a wide range of published research to illustrate how research may be conducted in these areas and gives particular attention to the problems of researching the effectiveness of therapy.

Hearing Differently: The Impact of Hearing Impairment on Family Life
Hearing loss now strikes one in seven people but how to study the impact of hearing loss on relationships has continually baffled researchers. The authors' personal experience with profound hearing loss and her roles as wife, mother, social worker and counsellor, suggest that the complexities involved might be fruitfully explored by using an intensive and repetitive interviewing technique. This book explores and analyses 150 in-depth interviews with hearing impaired people, including eleven couples in committed relationships where one partner is hearing and the other is hearing impaired. Detailed information was obtained about the way each couple managed conflict, decision making, household chores, communication, and perceived the hearing impairment within their relationship. Five major strands emerge: intimate family relationships, social support networks, communication strategies, the nature of care and recommendations for social policy. By drawing from the fields of family therapy, marital therapy, counselling, family sociology, social policy, psychology, social psychology and linguistics as well as disability and deafness, a new broader and more positive picture emerges. This ground-breaking book is aimed at professionals who would like to work more effectively with deaf and hearing impaired people. Although not a 'How to Cope' book, it will also interest hearing impaired people themselves because of the enormous number of insights offered.

The majority of adolescent stutterers have a long history of dysfluency and as they approach the final years of their schooling they may become apprehensive about their future, particularly in relation to further education, career options, job interviews etc. The treatment of this age group is further complicated by the experience of adolescence itself, and the problems presented by this group are very different to those posed by young children of adults who stutter. This book presents a Communication Skills Approach to the treatment of adolescent stuttering which has been developed over many years of clinical experience.

Ballantyne's Deafness
Developments in the field of hearing health care have been significant over the last five years. This complete revision of Deafness reflects these changes and is not only an updating of the previous information but also adds new areas such as social aspects of deafness and mental health and deafness. The book maintains its original aim to be targeted at a wide range of readers who have a need for information on deafness. It will provide easily digested information for a wide range of professionals who have no experience in the field as well as for lay people such as parents of deaf children and deaf people themselves. As it covers a very wide range of topics in one volume it will also serve as an initial reference work for professionals already working with deaf and hard of hearing people. The 27 chapters are written by experts currently practising in their respective subjects. The chapters describe the nature and number of people with hearing loss, the anatomy and physiology of the ear, causes of deafness and their treatment, the measurement of hearing and screening for hearing loss, hearing loss in children and its diagnosis treatment and management, the effects of ageing and noise on hearing, psychological and psychiatric aspects of deafness, hearing aids and assistive devices, cochlear and other implanted devices.

The appearance of this new volume is very timely bearing in mind recent scientific advances in the field and the contents should appeal to both experienced practitioners and to students. Contributions are presented from a wide range of scientific and medical personnel working in paediatric audiology all with their particular views and specialisations.

Psyche, Self and Soul: Rethinking Psychoanalysis, the Self and Spirituality
Psyche, Self and Soul is a many faceted exploration of the relationship of psychotherapy and spirituality. Introducing the term a an everyday transcendencea , Gargiulo studies the silent alone space of each individual and relates a psychoanalytic exploration to a spiritual journey. Calling on the thought of philosophers, theologians, scientists and analysts, the text gives a new framework for understanding psychoanalysis and spirituality grounded in the here and now as well as a psychoanalysis that respects mystery, justice and civility. The clinical cases demonstrate how each patienta s task must be understood as individualized, and consequently, how the analyst/therapist must creatively adapt clinical technique. D.W. Winnicotta s thoughts are applied throughout the text and are given a comprehensive summary in the final chapters.
