About this book


Every parent hopes for a healthy, "normal" baby, but not all babies fall into that category. On a daily basis, genetic counselors help clients, at whatever stage of intended or actual pregnancy, navigate both the purely clincial manifestations of a complicated birth and the short and long term emotional impact. This manual helps students learn how to guide clients through this complex and difficult process. Designed to help students learn these basic counseling skills, FACILITATING THE GENETIC COUNSELING PROCESS takes a "how to" approach to these complex and emotionally charged client interactions.
