Diagnosis as Cultural Practice (Paperback, New edition): Judith Felson Duchan, Dana Kovarsky Diagnosis as Cultural Practice (Paperback, New edition)
Judith Felson Duchan, Dana Kovarsky
R1,681 R1,556 Discovery Miles 15 560 Save R125 (7%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book is about the doing and experiencing of diagnosis in everyday life. Diagnoses are revealed as interactive negotiations rather than as the assigning of diagnostic labels. The authors demonstrate, through detailed discourse analyses, how the diagnostic process depends on power and accountability as expressed through the talk of those engaged in the diagnostic process. The authors also show that diagnostic decisions are not only made by professional experts trained in the art and science of diagnosis, but they can also be made by anyone trying to figure out the nature of everyday problems. Finally, diagnostic reasoning is found to extend beyond typical diagnostic situations, occurring in unexpected places such as written letters of recommendation and talk about the nature of communication. Together, the chapters in this book demonstrate how diagnosis is a communication practice deeply rooted in our culture. The book is interdisciplinary and unusually broad in its focus. The authors come from different experiential scholarly backgrounds. Each of them takes a different look at the impact and nature of the diagnostic process. The diagnoses discussed include autism, Alzheimer's disease, speech and language disorders, and menopause. The focus is not only on the here and now of the diagnostic interaction, but also on how diagnoses and diagnostic processes change over time. The book can serve as an undergraduate or graduate text for courses offered in various disciplines, including communication, sociology, anthropology, communication disorders, audiology, linguistics, medicine, and disability studies.

The Aphasia Therapy File - Volume 2 (Paperback): Sally Byng, Judith Felson Duchan, Carole Pound The Aphasia Therapy File - Volume 2 (Paperback)

R1,186 Discovery Miles 11 860 Out of stock

The Aphasia Therapy Files represent a practical resource for people who work with individuals with aphasia, either as therapists or as researchers. An overview of issues associated with current practices is combined with a study of the practicalities of determining, designing and implementing therapies.

This second volume continues to explore the possibility of bridging the gap between therapy in a clinical setting and the practical issues faced by the person living with aphasia. Each author presents one or more of their clinical practices in order to share their therapy experiences and reasoning with others. These contributions provide an insight into the complex issues that face both the practitioner and the person with aphasia, including discussion of subjects such as:

Revealing competence and rethinking identity for people with severe aphasia using drawing and a communication book

Respecting the rights of a person with aphasia to their own life choices: a longitudinal therapy study

A group approach to the long-term rehabilitation of people with acquired head injury within the community

Lexical and functionally based treatment: effects on word retrieval and conversation

While each of the chapters is of considerable interest on its own, the final chapter offers readers a method of describing and capturing what happens in therapy and why, to enable comparisons between therapies and application by readers themselves.

Written by speech and language therapists working in clinical practice, the studies included in this unique resource reflect the realities of everyday practice and will appeal to therapists, students and researchers in aphasia.

R955 R855 Discovery Miles 8 550 Save R100 (10%) Out of stock

Challenging Aphasia Therapies presents an entirely new approach to thinking on the subject of aphasia therapy by liberating it from traditional models. This is achieved through a process of reflection in which many assumptions previously taken for granted are challenged and reassessed. Internationally renowned experts successfully demonstrate the benefits of learning about aphasia therapy through the process of engaging in it. Topics covered include: * the role of context, culture and conversation in shaping and directing aphasia therapy * the ethical issues that arise from the current tensions between market driven health care industries and the moral commitment to their client welfare * the value of therapy. Contributors challenge the common notion of successful therapy as solely performance related. * the potential and competent use of humour in aphasia therapy. The identification of the strengths and limitations of clinical models and the focus on relevant directions for therapy will be of interest to practising clinicians as well as anyone involved in study or research in speech and language therapy.

The Aphasia Therapy Files represent a practical resource for people who work with individuals with aphasia, either as therapists or as researchers. Rather than focusing on theoretical issues underlying the impairment or disability, the focus in the studies is on the practicalities of determining, designing and implementing the therapies. However, each section is introduced by an overview, which relates the studies to current theoretical thinking and other relevant studies in the published literature. The Files provide a rich source not only of ideas about what to do in therapy for this complex condition, but also of insights into the way that therapists try to determine what the focus of therapy should be.
The second volume provides a further extensive set of studies about doing therapy. These studies also cover a wider range of issues than the first volume. In the first section, the studies relate to therapies that aim to assist people in learning to live with aphasia. These studies tackle the complexities of making that transition and finding a new identity as a person with aphasia. In the second section therapies for specific aspects of the language impairment in aphasia are described in detail. Some of the studies also examine the relationship between these two different aspects of therapy - working on the impairment and addressing life issues.
The majority of the studies have been written by speech and language therapists working in clinical practice, often in collaboration with research therapists. The studies largely reflect the realities of everyday practice and will appeal to therapists and students as well as researchers in aphasiology.
