A Clinical Presentation of a Patient with Wernicke’s Aphasia
In our sixth program of the series, the presenter will describe a10-month psychotherapy with a woman who three years ago suffered a stroke which injured the left hemisphere of her brain. As a result, the patient’s ability to understand written and spoken language and her capacity to produce the written word and fluent speech were severely compromised. Without the usual access to language, the presenter demonstrates how the therapist and the patient learned to communicate in sessions, with greater reliance on non-verbal communication, as well as process intensely emotional life events.
