Description

Preparing Deaf and Hearing Persons with Language and Learning Challenges for CBT: A Pre-Therapy Workbook presents 12 lessons to guide staff in hospital and community mental health and rehabilitation programs on creating skill-oriented therapy settings when working with people who don't read well or have trouble with abstract ideas, problem solving, reasoning, attention, and learning. Drawing from the worlds of CBT, current understandings of best practices in psychotherapy, and the emerging clinical specialty of Deaf mental health care, the workbook describes methods for engaging people who are often considered poor candidates for psychotherapy.
