Reviews

  • Leonard L. LaPointe, PhD., Florida State University:
    "...this book is essential. Group intervention strategies offer distinctive benefits as a supplement or in some cases a replacement to traditional one-on-one modes of treatment. Elman has organized, coordinated, and gathered a team who advance these concepts brilliantly. This book should be on the desk of any clinical researcher, teacher, or clinician who struggles with the challenges of brain-based communication loss."

  • Doody Enterprises, Inc.:
    "...Meets the author's worthy objectives of providing an accurate account of how clinicians experienced in providing group therapy do so successfully.... This second edition provides updated information that improves the quality of this book."

  • Doody's (2015):
    "Named to Doody's Core Titles in the Health Sciences 2015 list"

  • Sarah Colle, BA, George Washington University, Doody's Review Service:
    "...[This book] meets the author's worthy objectives of providing an accurate account of how clinicians experienced in providing group therapy do so successfully...The author includes several examples of diagnostic tools, treatment plans, and activities that would be helpful. This book would be extremely useful to student clinicians or certified speech-language pathologists conducting group treatment. The detailed and practical information in this book is necessary when first learning to conduct group treatment and is not always found in more general texts on neurogenic communication disorders. This second edition provides updated information that improves the quality of this book."
