Abstract

Genetic counseling is a communication process which deals with the human problems associated with the occurrence, or the risk of occurrence, of a genetic disorder in a family. It involves an attempt by one or more appropriately trained persons to help the individual or family to comprehend the medical facts, including the diagnosis, probable course of the disorder, and available management; appreciate the way heredity contributes to the disorder and the risk of recurrence in specified relatives; understand the alternatives for dealing with the risk of recurrence; and choose the course of action which seems to them appropriate in view of their risk, their family goals, and their ethical and religious standards and to act in accordance with that decision.
