This comprehensive treatise on the applications of systems theory presents a model designed to aid clinicians and counselors in understanding and treating deaf, hard-of-heading, and deafened individuals. The model uses a wide ecological perspective to examine the influences of larger networks -- families, professionals, and friends -- on the individual and vice versa. The author balances theoretical descriptions with practical intervention guidelines utilizing actual case studies and verbatim transcripts of therapy sessions.
