Now in its third edition, Counseling in Communication Disorders: A Wellness Perspective continues to be an essential and admired text for counseling related courses in graduate speech-language pathology and audiology programs. The counseling skills introduced in this book are based on the model of positive psychology, a rapidly growing branch of psychology that focuses on mental health and well-being and how to achieve and maintain these states. By incorporating the key elements of positive psychology into clinical practice, clinicians can more effectively help patients live productively and successfully with their communication disorders.

The authors offer examples, exercises, and specific techniques for working with individuals and their families across the spectrum of communication disorders, from infancy through end-of-life needs. In addition, they also feature one-on-one activities and model workshop examples for use in teaching counseling strategies to groups or classes.

New to the Third Edition:

  • Expanded information on issues concerning cultural diversity, especially in regard to children and their families
  • Expanded strategies for recognizing and growing strengths in family dynamics including early intervention
  • Extended considerations for counseling individuals and families when deterioration of abilities is expected
  • More in-depth information on the unique problems of persons with mild cognitive impairment, primary progressive aphasia, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy
  • Updates on findings and issues in Positive Psychology
  • Information introducing clinicians and students to Posttraumatic Growth and its relevance to the field
  • Updated counseling literature throughout

With its updates and additions, Counseling in Communication Disorders: A Wellness Perspective, Third Edition, is destined to remain a popular resource and teaching tool for developing speech-language pathologists and audiologists.
