"The book provides a valuable combination of theory and practical tips. Strongly recommended for mental health professionals, educators, interpreters, rehabilitation counselors, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, upper-division undergraduates, and graduate students in deafness-related fields." - CHOICE

"Until now, psychologists and other mental health professionals in the deafness field as well as cross-cultural psychologists have had a conspicuous characteristic in common: a general disinterest in each other's work. Since these two subdisciplines actually confront several of the same basic issues, Glickman and Harvey's book has finally brought much-needed attention to the cultural differentness of the Deaf community and a more germane approach to the mental health treatment of its members." - Barbara A. Brauer, Ph.D. and Allen E. Sussman, Ph.D., Community Counseling & Mental Health Clinic, Gallaudet University

"As one who's practiced and taught `culturally affirmative psychotherapy' with Deaf individuals for years (though we didn't have a name for it), this volume provides a welcome elucidation of its value and specific characteristics. The content and message of this important volume is one of liberation for the thousands of Deaf people who endure inappropriate or ineffective care at the hands of mental health practitioners who view, assess, or treat them as persons who are deficient, handicapped, pitiful or inferior. From theoretical to practical, this book contains a smorgasbord of wisdom. It's a `must have' volume for seasoned practitioners as well as for students and clinicians who are new to serving the Deaf population." - Robert Pollard, Ph.D. Founder, Program for Deaf Trainees, Department of Psychiatry, University of Roch
