Introduction to Group Treatment for Aphasia, Design and Management

di Marshall  • 1999  • dettagli prodotto


Until recently, group treatment has been overlooked in favor of individual therapy for communication disorders. However, due to changes in healthcare brought about by managed care's focus on containing costs, there has been a renewed interest in group treatment. Designed for speech-language pathologists who want to move their practices in a new direction by initiating group therapy programs, and for those who already run group programs but wish to manage them more effectively, this book addresses a wide range of key issues, including appropriate environments, types of programs, group composition and scheduling, and documentation and accountability. Practical issues important to group leaders, such as logistics, recruitment, costs of group treatment, and activity planning, are also discussed. Introduction to Group Treatment of Aphasia: Design and Management is a necessity for all speech-language pathologists who want to start successful group therapy programs and better meet the needs of their clients.
