This step-by-step guide will show you whether a group treatment program is right for you and will show you how to set up a successful group therapy program that serves the needs of adults with aphasia. It covers a wide range of key issues including appropriate environments, types of programs, group composition and scheduling, and documentation and accountability. 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. This book is a necessity for all speech-language pathologists who want to start successful group therapy programs and better meet the needs of their clients.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Formerly treated with individual therapy, aphasia has very recently (late 1990s) been reconsidered in the light of group therapy. Marshall (communicative disorders, U. of Rhode Island, Kingston) maintains that this approach is a cost effective and efficient means of providing support in the early postonset period as well as after the disorder becomes chronic. He writes on the benefits of group treatment, logistics, funding, group composition, documentation in the treatment session, group treatment activities, and social validation.
