Description

"This is the second edition of the popular volume used by clinicians and students in the assessment and intervention of aphasia. "--

'The first edition of this volume provided an accessible resource for students and clinicians, linking theory, research and practice. It assisted clinicians in the use of theoretically grounded assessment and to make evidence-based choices for treatment. The second edition builds on the first, updating assessment choices and treatment literature, and also by providing clear guidance on what steps need to be taken to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment, and discussing the broader context of aphasia therapy. This volume should be considered essential reading for students and an invaluable reference for clinicians.' - Lyndsey Nickels, Department of Cognitive Science, Macquarie University, Australia

'The 2nd edition of A Cognitive Neuropsychological Approach to Assessment and Intervention in Aphasia is unique, focusing as it does on the therapeutic application of principled clinical research findings. It is a joy to read such a coherently presented text: it's very clearly and transparently written, with excellent examples throughout making it highly accessible to clinicians, students and teachers. This 2nd edition includes expanded sections on assessment and treatment and the relationship of cognitive neuropsychological approaches to other contemporary developments in intervention for aphasia.' - Chris Code, Department of Psychology, University of Exeter, UK

Texte du rabat

This book provides both a theoretical and practical reference to cognitive neuropsychological approaches to speech and language therapists working with people with aphasia. Having evolved from the activity of a group of clinicians working with people with aphasia, it is a highly practical guide that aims to interpret the theoretical literature as it relates to aphasia and link it directly to available assessment tools and therapy techniques.

The opening section of the book provides an overview of the theory underpinning the approach and how it can be applied to the assessment and interpretation of language-processing impairments. The second section offers a working explanation of different components of language processing, outlining the deficits that may arise from impairment to each component. In addition, the clinician is guided to available assessments to test out clinical hypotheses and offered interpretations of performance patterns. The final section provides a comprehensive overview of the therapy literature with systematic summaries of the therapies undertaken and a synthesis of the findings to date.

This book has been written by clinicians with hands-on experience. It will be an invaluable resource for clinicians and students of speech and language therapy and related disciplines.



Résumé

This is a second edition of the highly popular volume used by clinicians and students in the assessment and intervention of aphasia. It provides both a theoretical and practical reference to cognitive neuropsychological approaches for speech-language pathologists and therapists working with people with aphasia. Having evolved from the activity of a group of clinicians working with aphasia, it interprets the theoretical literature as it relates to aphasia, identifying available assessments and published intervention studies, and draws together a complex literature for the practicing clinician.

The opening section of the book outlines the cognitive neuropsychological approach, and explains how it can be applied to assessment and interpretation of language processing impairments. Part 2 describes the deficits which can arise from impairments at different stages of language processing, and also provides an accessible guide to the use of assessment tools in identifying underlying impairments. The final part of the book provides systematic summaries of therapies reported in the literature, followed by a comprehensive synopsis of the current themes and issues confronting clinicians when drawing on cognitive neuropsychological theory in planning and evaluating intervention.

This new edition has been updated and expanded to include the assessment and treatment of verbs as well as nouns, presenting recently published assessments and intervention studies. It also includes a principled discussion on how to conduct robust evaluations of intervention within the clinical and research settings.

The book has been written by clinicians with hands-on experience. Like its predecessor, it will remain an invaluable resource for clinicians and students of speech-language pathology and related disciplines, in working with people with aphasia.
