Flasher, a clinical psychologist and trainer, and Fogle, a speech-language pathologist, help students and beginning and experienced speech-language pathologists and audiologists learn counseling skills to help clients cope with the challenges of communication disorders. They place the theories and techniques of counseling in real-life contexts, and cover the basics of counseling, the application of theories to speech-language pathology and audiology, the therapeutic relationship and communication, and interviewing and therapy microskills, as well as challenging situations or behaviors, such as defense mechanisms, difficult emotional states, communicating bad news, resistance and anger, crisis situations, and taking care of oneself (updated in this edition). This edition has new chapters (some by additional authors) on multicultural competencies, working with families, and counseling adults and children with hearing loss and speech, language, fluency, voice, and cleft lip and palate disorders, and adults with neurological disorders or dysphagia. It adds role play exercises at the ends of chapters and has new information on working with active duty military combat veterans.
