We want to explore whether an existing therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), can be used with people with aphasia. We also want to collect information to help us design a future large-scale trial evaluating this approach. SFBT is a ‘talking therapy’, which explores a person’s strengths and resilience to help build positive change in their lives.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans provide lots of data on the health of a person’s brain, not all of which is routinely used in clinical practice. This project will continue the development of tools to assess the brain scans of people with stroke.
As part of our research programme, we fund exceptional candidates from stroke professional backgrounds to our prestigious Postgraduate and Postdoctoral Fellowship positions.
