dc.description.abstract Due to the paucity of Deaf counsellors it is inevitable that d/Deaf clients are more likely to have a hearing counsellor. For the past 25 years, I have worked as a Sign Language Interpreter and interacted with the Deaf community. Through those years, it has become evident that non-deaf (hearing) counsellors are often unfamiliar, unsure, and lack the necessary information required to provide a culturally infused approach to counselling d/Deaf clients. I saw a need to create a manual which synthesized and included information to better prepare counsellors when working with d/Deaf clients. This manual introduces; common terminology, information about Deaf culture, hiring and using interpreters, understanding the technology d/Deaf people use in their daily lives and a list of questions to help the counsellor know how the d/Deaf person culturally views themselves. A DVD is also included which provides basic signs for office staff and the counsellor to help establish a rapport with their d/Deaf client. en
