Deafness in Mind presents the varying theoretical approaches to the psychology of deafness: systemic, Cognitive behavioural, psychodynamic, wellness and cognitive neuropsychological models. Uniquely, clinical theory and practice are linked to provide a comprehensive understanding of the deaf mental health field. For the first time, the controversial subject of cochlear implants is discussed in the same book as the mental health of culturally Deaf people.  Similarly, prevention is considered alongside prevalence, and the book appraises the various political views where other books have taken a single political view.

Deafness in Mind has drawn contributing authors from those with the authority of years of clinical experience as well as those with new ideas. Current services and new directions in the field are brought together to provide a definitative text in the psychology of mental health and deafness.
