Product Description

Author: Ruth Morgan-Jones

Publisher: John Wiley and Sons Ltd, UK (2000)

This book explores and analyses 150 in–depth interviews with hearing impaired people, including eleven couples in committed relationships where one partner is hearing and the other is hearing impaired. Detailed information was obtained about the way each couple managed conflict, decision making, household chores, communication, and perceived the hearing impairment within their relationship.

Five major strands emerge: intimate family relationships, social support networks, communication strategies, the nature of care and recommendations for social policy.

By drawing from the fields of family therapy, marital therapy, counselling, family sociology, social policy, psychology, social psychology and linguistics as well as disability and deafness, a new broader and more positive picture emerges.
