Mental Health Services for Deaf People: Treatment Advances, Opportunities, and Challenges by Benito Estrada Aranda, Ines Sleeboom-van Raaij

The World Congress on Mental Health and Deafness first met at Gallaudet University in October 1998, and it has convened five more times in the succeeding years. This volume collects the very best research presented at the Fifth World Congress, which took place in Monterrey, Mexico, in 2012. The eighteen international contributors represent the pioneers of mental health and deafness services in their respective countries.
Volume editors Benito Estrada Aranda and Ines Sleeboom-van Raaij have divided the book into three parts—Mental Health Issues and Treatment, Deaf Populations, and Deaf Children and Their Families. In the first part, the contributors provide in-depth analysis of specific challenges and treatment modalities ranging from the provision of mental healthcare as a basic human right to psychopharmacological treatment, the challenges in developing mental health services for deaf and hard of hearing people in countries where none exist, and new treatment therapies.
Part two looks at issues of self-esteem and cultural identity among deaf and hard of hearing adults in Greece and Cyprus, the services for deaf people at a public health clinic in Austria, and the quality of life among Latino Deaf bilinguals in the United States. In the last part, the contributors focus on mental health issues found in deaf children and adolescents and on the relationships between deaf teenagers and their hearing mothers. The volume concludes with a case study of a prelingually deaf child diagnosed as autistic. Taken all together, these cutting-edge articles explore the important issues within the specialized area of mental health and deafness.

Consent: Domestic and Comparative Perspectives

Routledge | English | 2017 | ISBN-10: 147246995X | 454 pages | PDF | 1.97 MB

by Alan Reed (Editor), Michael Bohlander (Editor), Nicola Wake (Editor), Emma Smith (Editor)
This volume presents a leading contribution to the substantive arena relating to consent in the criminal law. In broad terms, the ambit of legally valid consent in extant law is contestable and opaque, and reveals significant problems in adoption of consistent approaches to doctrinal and theoretical underpinnings of consent. This book seeks to provide a logical template to focus the debate. The overall concept addresses three specific elements within this arena, embracing an overarching synergy between them. This edifice engages in an examination of UK provisions, with specialist contributions on Irish and Scottish law, and in contrasting these provisions against alternative domestic jurisdictions as well as comparative contributions addressing a particularised research grid for consent. The comparative chapters provide a wider background of how other legal systems’ treat a variety of specialised issues relating to consent in the context of the criminal law. The debate in relation to consent principles continues for academics, practitioners and within the criminal justice system. Having expert descriptions of the wider issues surrounding the particular discussion and of other legal systems’ approaches serves to stimulate and inform that debate. This collection will be a major source of reference for future discussion.
‘Autonomy is so vital to personal integrity that protection is paramount, yet what constitutes valid consent and what can be consented to are highly contested. This collection addresses both concerns head on. It provides a sustained, theoretically-informed, comparative analysis of one of the most troublesome areas of criminal law.’
Professor Gavin Dingwall, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK
‘I very much welcome the publication of this rich study on the multifaceted concept of consent in criminal law. Its extensive comparative analysis provides a broad and extremely useful overview on a fundamental issue which is at the core of many debates not only before domestic courts but also before international jurisdictions.’
Judge Jean-Marc Lavergne, Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, Phnom Penh

Results rolling in! Algebra, 6th = 74%. Not bad. Latin = 55% Thrilled! History top = 85% smashing! Geography, disgusting, 2nd = 67%.
In 1954 in Carlisle lived an ordinary 15-year-old schoolgirl called Margaret. She would go on to become an acclaimed writer, the author of the novels Georgy Girl and Diary of an Ordinary Woman as well as biographies and memoirs. But this is her diary from that year; her life. Hers might be a lost world, but her daily observations bring it back in vivid, irresistible detail.

Wonderful feat accomplished yesterday by Roger Bannister! At last, the 4 minute mile. Glad an Englishman got it before anyone else.

Bought a pair of shorts – white, very short with two pockets. Super but rather daring!

Mum’s coming back on Saturday. Miss her every minute! I’ll never marry and have a family – housekeeping for two for a week is bad enough – but for life!

Chronic Sorrow, Second Edition: A Living Loss

Routledge | English | 2018 | ISBN-10: 1138230677 | 220 pages | PDF | 6.56 MB

by Susan Roos (Author)
Chronic Sorrow explores natural grief reactions to losses that are not final and continue to be present in the life of the griever. This second edition updates terminology, pertinent research, and the roles the concept of chronic sorrow has come to play in the nursing, medical, social work, pastoral, and community counseling professions, among others. This text also extends the concept’s usefulness to other ongoing losses that are bases for non-ending grief responses, such as serious disabilities. Benefits and social supports are explored in depth, giving readers a practical guide for accessing available resources. Chapters also give guidance for professionals to assist individuals and families who struggle with living with irremovable loss, helping them plan for a future in which customary caregivers can no longer carry the load.
“In limber and literate prose, Susan Roos once again brings to light a form of grief that often is relegated to the shadows of professional recognition―the lingering anguish that attends living losses that lack the eventual resolution which may accompany bereavement. In the existential crucible presented by life with a disabling condition, a child with special needs, and chronic mental or physical illness or injury in oneself or another, we confront not only the harsh reality of irremediable circumstances, but also the ironic opportunity to embrace life wisely and passionately despite its sometimes daunting imperfections. Blending historical insight with contemporary research, and leavening both with personal knowledge and evident clinical acumen, Roos does much to broaden the scope of grief therapy, and to deepen our responsiveness as clinical professionals to those whose losses deserve to be named and claimed, rather than silenced.”
Robert A. Neimeyer, PhD, editor of Death Studies, and editor of Techniques of Grief Therapy: Assessment and Intervention
“The newest edition of the now classic Chronic Sorrow builds on the research and discussion generated by the first edition. Chronic Sorrow offers vital insight into the ways that individuals cope with ongoing loss, such as raising a child with disabilities. Susan Roos provides sage advice as well as resources to assist families and individuals in coping with what might seem impossible to endure. It reaffirms the human capacity for both sorrow and sacrifice.”
Kenneth J. Doka, PhD, professor, The Graduate School, The College of New Rochelle, senior consultant, The Hospice Foundation of America
“In Chronic Sorrow, Susan Roos draws upon her sorrow, her research, her determination, her strength, and her wisdom to provide information and support about this painful experience. She also provides an overview of the current level of treatment, a view of research being done, and hope for the future. Her work is a remarkable contribution to those who are experiencing the pain of chronic sorrow and to those who are working in this field.”
Barry M. Panter, MD, founder and codirector of The American Institute of Medical Education, the Creativity and Madness Conference and the Women of Resilience Conference, clinical professor of psychiatry (emeritus), University of Southern California School of Medicine
