Practical Genetic Counselling 7th Edition PDF Free Download
At another level, though, much has remained unchanged. The problems and questions that families bring to us are largely the same, and so are the main approaches used in genetic counselling to try to help them. New laboratory advances have greatly extended what we are able to do, but have not removed the need for the practice of genetic counselling, and of clinical genetics generally, to rest on these long established foundations, and on sound psychological principles for the way in which we interact with those we see. I wrote the original edition of this book primarily for those who were not experts or specialists in the field, and have been surprised to find that those working in Medical Genetics have also found it useful, particularly trainees and, increasingly, non-medical genetic counsellors. I suspect that this is because the book is short and written in simple language, and has never attempted to provide the details that can be found in larger volumes.
