Adult Audiologic Rehabiliation, Second Edition is an advanced textbook for doctoral level audiologists that focuses solely on adults with a completely international perspective. The second edition includes nine new chapters and is the only advanced text to meet the need for the high level of preparation required for doctoral level training, and presents clinicians with the latest practice techniques and technologies. With ever changing technology and new methodologies in client care, the second edition of Adult Audiologic Rehabilitation is a critical resource to audiology education. The book covers definitions of audiologic rehabilitation, an overview of the area, psychosocial impact of hearing loss, assessment strategies, current technologies, treatment methodologies, research needs, and special issues in audiologic rehabilitation. It has been deliberately structured to move the reader from introduction, to specific details of the specialty of audiologic rehabilitation, to providing insights into characteristics of this patient population, and thence to a framework for assessment and treatment of the impact of hearing loss.
