User’s Review:

Review “This volume reflects the fact the impact and maturity of a discipline
and, in our case, two professions, cannot be measured by disciplinary
expertise in speech-language pathology and audiology alone. Rather, the
context in which we practice is just as important as what we practice. In
fact, we cannot practice or do clinical research effectively without
understanding the demands of culture, law, global influences, and the
values and ethics of our own and other professions. …This volume contains
30 chapters written by 45 authors organized into four main sections
overview of the professions, employment issues, setting-specific issues,
and working productively. This is a rare book, serving to enlighten
students as they become professionals and to allow even experienced
practitioners to learn about new trends in, and external pressures to, the
discipline. It can be both a beginning textbook and a ] resource for
individuals and groups as they grapple with professional practice and
translational research in the 21st century. This book contains the
collective wisdom and experience of expert clinicians, scholars, and
administrators from every practice setting, the academy, and professional
associations. These authors have held a variety of national, state, and
local leadership positions. I have worked with many of them directly and
have listened to their thoughtful presentations. Seeing this volume today
makes me want to teach Professional Issues again. There is no doubt that
readers will have the highest quality experience that will assist them
every day in their professions.” –Arlene Earley Carney, PhD, CCC-A,
