  • Adaptations of best practices in inpatient, residential, trauma, and substance abuse treatment for deaf persons
  • Overcoming administrative barriers to establishing statewide continua of care

  • The interplay of clinical and forensic responses to deaf people who commit crimes
  • An agenda of priorities for Deaf mental health research

Each chapter contains numerous clinical case studies and places a heavy emphasis on providing practical intervention strategies in an interesting, easy to read style.
