Supporting people with aphasia to ‘settle into a new way to be’: speech and language therapists’ views on providing psychosocial support
NHS England is not responsible for content on external websites.
This multidisciplinary study is one of a number of studies that explored how Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs) conceptualize the scope of their role; barriers and facilitators to SLTs addressing psychosocial needs; SLTs’ experiences of specialist training and support and working with Mental Health Professionals (MHPs). A main finding of the study was that participants perceived many MHPs did not consider people with aphasia as ‘appropriate candidates’ for psychological input.
