This is the first webinar in a series of educational events as part of a project supported by funding from the National HSCP Office, submitted by IASLT and AOTI jointly. The overall project includes webinars and discipline-specific training with the aim of developing an inclusive and interdisciplinary community of practice to provide professional support and to explore ideas for “Supporting Emotions with Aphasia” in clinical practice.
Having attended webinars, participants will be able to:
- Describe the research context and evidence around empirical need for emotional support among people with post-stroke aphasia and other communication impairments; their families, including children, and a documented lack of access to communicatively accessible support in Ireland and elsewhere.
- Understand and learn from a range of disciplinary perspectives on current and ideal service provision in a safe and shared forum.
- Learn about the perspectives of people living with post-stroke aphasia and other communication impairments around the importance of overcoming and managing negative emotional responses as part of learning to live well with their condition; the support needs of their families; and barriers and experiences of accessing relevant support in Ireland.
- Hear from interdisciplinary researchers relating to novel evidence-based treatment approaches that have been adapted in the context of communication impairment.
- Understand the principles of, and rationale for supported conversation training for mental health professionals.
- Learn the principles of, and experiences of teams involved in joint working in the provision of psychosocial support for people with post-stroke communication impairment.
- Learn about opportunities for becoming part of a Community of Practice and benefitting from further collaborative and training events.
