SIG 7 Perspectives Vol. 18, No. 1, October 2011
This issue of Perspectives focused on psychosocial issues and programs in adult aural rehabilitation including third party disability in spouses of older people with hearing impairment, social psychology of living with acquired hearing loss, and biopsychosocial audiologic rehabilitation program for late deafened adults with cochlear implants.
