Audiologists are challenged continually throughout their careers to review their effectiveness as professionals in helping individuals who have hearing loss. This is particularly true in the area of counseling. Although the profession of audiology developed originally as a rehabilitative field because of the many World War II veterans suffering from hearing loss, improvements in technology have moved the focus of the field more toward diagnosis. Unfortunately, this shift has moved audiologists’ thinking and training further from the client, and in so doing has de-emphasized the importance and relevance of counseling in helping people and their families adjust to the effects of hearing impairment.
