Details

In this compilation, the authors describe the psychological consequences and effects of predictive cancer genetic testing in both breast and ovarian cancer. Predictive genetic tests are being offered to an increasing number of women as the availability and public awareness of genetic testing increases.

Next, A Comprehensive Guide to Genetic Counseling assesses the parental psychosocial implications, such as emotions and coping, regarding the earlier diagnosis of Usher syndrome via genetic testing compared to parents of children who were diagnosed later via ophthalmologic findings.

The closing chapter reports on a comprehensive analysis of the studies performed on genetic counseling, particularly those pertaining to the Israeli Arab society. Furthermore, an overview of the various socio-demographic, economic, cultural and religious aspects is provided.
