Here, a stellar group of mental health practitioners assess the impact of genetic knowledge on family life in such areas as: genetic screening and testing; law and ethics; infertility; informed decision making; and the current understanding of various genetic conditions such as Huntington's disease, cystic fibrosis, and juvenile diabetes.

PressestimmenThis book serves up just about exactly what we need in order to deal with the flood of genetic information pouring over the transom. More than anything else it gives clinicians, educators, and researchers a way to think about genetic information as it applies to people's lives and patients' health. It succeeds beyond expectations. . . . [A] "tour de force". I believe there is no better source of orientation, information, and good judgment about clinical genomics and genetics than is found between these covers.
