The Academy of Rehabilitative Audiology held its annual Summer Institute June 11–14 at the Abbey on Lake Geneva in Fontana, Wisconsin. The keynote speaker for 1998 was Lillemor Hallberg from the University of Göteberg. In addition to the Keynote Address on “Effects of Hearing Impairment on Family Life,” Hallberg gave presentations on rehabilitation for those with noise induced hearing impairment and their spouses and on the role of coping and perceived handicap in adjustment to hearing impairment.
Other invited speakers included John F. Knutson and Jerry Northern. Knutson, Professor of Psychology at the University of Iowa, presented data contrasting the psychological characteristics of cochlear implant candidates over the last two decades. Although they continue to be individuals who report more psychological distress than the general population, today's implant candidates are significantly less psychologically distressed than those who were candidates in the early 1980s. The differences were also evident in outcomes data.
