How aphasia may affect your mood and emotions.
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified psychological and cognitive (thinking and mood) problems after stroke as someof the most important areas where more research is needed. This Lectureship will investigate how common these issues are after stroke, how they change over time, and how these changes can be predicted.
People can experience a range of changes to their mood and thinking after a stroke. While we have information about these changes in the short-term (up to 12 months) after stroke, we don’t know much about the longer term changes. This research aims to find out more about how thinking and mood are affected long-term after stroke.
This study will explore whether an existing therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), can be used for people with aphasia. Information will also be collected to design a future large-scale trial evaluating this approach.

Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified problems with thinking and mood after stroke as some of the most important issues faced after a stroke. This Lectureship aims to test treatments to help stroke survivors with their cognitive (thinking) difficulties.
Cognitive impairments after stroke can affect people’s confidence and mood as well as their ability to recover. PRECiS stands for ‘Patient-Reported Evaluation of Cognitive State’.
