Psychotherapy Networker Magazine;May2007, Vol. 31 Issue 3, p44
The article offers information on genomic science, and its impact on psychotherapy. Genomic science is associated with genetic testing, embryo selection, and genetic engineering to improve treatment for intractable diseases. According to the author, this technology raises many psychosocial questions, such as, whether genomics will affect a person's choice of partners, plans to have children, or relationships with adolescents.
