Solution-focused co-therapy for a couple with aphasia
Asia Pacific Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing
A speech-language pathologist (SLP) and a social worker co-treated a couple using Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). The female member of the couple had aphasia, and sought therapy with her husband because they were having difficulty in their relationship. A single session of SFT is analysed. Finding exceptions to ‘problem behaviour’, emphasizing the positive, solution-focused reinforcement, and the changing roles of the SLP and social worker are highlighted. A ‘fully collaborative’ role was adopted by the therapists.
