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.

Expanded information on issues concerning cultural diversity, especially in regard to children and their familiesExpanded 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 PsychologyInformation introducing clinicians and students to Posttraumatic Growth and its relevance to the fieldUpdated 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. 

 Assessment of Communication Disorders in Adults: Resources and Protocols, Second Edition offers a unique combination of scholarly information, invaluable resources, and time-saving protocols on assessment of communication disorders in adults.

Most resource books offer limited research and scholarly information, thus making them unsuitable as textbooks for academic courses on assessment and diagnosis. Similarly, most traditional textbooks do not include practical, easy-to-use, and time-saving resources and protocols that the practicing clinicians can readily use during assessment sessions. By combining the strengths of traditional textbooks with newer assessment resources and protocols, this one-of-a-kind book offers a single, comprehensive source that is suitable as a textbook and useful as a practical clinical resource.
