This book is a MUST in the library of any healthcare professional, counselor, psychologist, or educator involved with a Deaf population. It is rare that the Deaf Community will resort to a reference book, when looking for a sign, and in this case, I have seen Deaf men and women in psychiatric care professions use this (and the Sexual Signs Book) in actual treatment conditions!

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent resource for sign language interpreters and other professionals working in the drug and alcohol rehabilitation field. It is easy to become stuck using only one sign to express a particular concept in ASL--this book presents numerous signs and approaches for each concept. Highly recommended. As a word of warning, however, this is not a beginning sign language book as it assumes you have a good understanding of ASL grammar and linguistics.

For those looking to work in counseling or education of the Deaf, this book is a good addition to both your ASL library and all the American Sign Language classes you should be taking to learn the language. remember, a book will show you signs, but will not teach you the language. This book could use an updated edition, but is a great resource.

I love this book. Great source of information and wonderful addition to my reference library. Just wish there were more up to date books. I'm sure this type of book and others like it would be a great asset for interpreters.
