Counseling in the field of communication disorders is an essential dimension of professional practice, but just what it entails is often a bit of a mystery. Counseling in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology: Reconstructing Personal Narrativesaddresses this common concern of students and practitioners by illustrating how to integrate the concept of counseling into clinical practice. Replete with a variety of case studies, clinical guidelines, and actual transcripts of counseling interventions with clients and their families, as well as a practical "toolbox" of specific counseling methods, Dr. DiLollo and Dr. Neimeyer offer a comprehensive, novel, and empirically informed approach to counseling, applicable to a broad range of speech, language, swallowing, and hearing disorders.


"The strength of the text is that the authors have synthesized several approaches to counseling in a way that is not at all confusing or intimidating for students, and in the process they provide a strong message that effective counseling is well within the capability of the SLP. Many authors have said 'You should do this,' but DiLollo and Neimeyer make a convincing case for  'You CAN do this.' That's been the crux of my counseling course for years!"
Bob Volin, Associate Professor at New York Medical College, School of Health Sciences and Practice 

"Counseling in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology by DiLollo and Neimeyer is an invaluable resource for experienced clinicians, new graduates and students in the field of speech pathology and audiology. This book takes readers on a journey, aiming to empower them to challenge their thinking and understanding of counseling, focusing on a constructivist-narrative perspective.The structure of this book makes it engaging and user-friendly.The passion of both authors for this topic is evident through their engaging, descriptive writing style."
