The Aphasia Therapy File
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Aphasia Therapy Files represent a practical resource for people who work with individuals with aphasia, either as therapists or as researchers. Rather than focusing on theoretical issues underlying the impairment or disability, the focus in the studies is on the practicalities of determining, designing and implementing the therapies. However, each section is introduced by an overview, which relates the studies to current theoretical thinking and other relevant studies in the published literature. The Files provide a rich source not only of ideas about what to do in therapy for this complex condition, but also of insights into the way that therapists try to determine what the focus of therapy should be. The second volume provides a further extensive set of studies about doing therapy. These studies also cover a wider range of issues than the first volume. In the first section, the studies relate to therapies that aim to assist people in learning to live with aphasia. These studies tackle the complexities of making that transition and finding a new identity as a person with aphasia. In the second section therapies for specific aspects of the language impairment in aphasia are described in detail. Some of the studies also examine the relationship between these two different aspects of therapy - working on the impairment and addressing life issues. The majority of the studies have been written by speech and language therapists working in clinical practice, often in collaboration with research therapists. The studies largely reflect the realities of everyday practice and will appeal to therapists and students as well as researchers in aphasiology.
