The term "aphasia’" describes a difficulty understanding and using language, secondary to an acquired brain injury (ABI). People with aphasia may have problems with speaking, understanding, writing, reading and counting. The most common cause of aphasia is stroke, but it can also be the result of traumatic brain injury or brain tumours. People with aphasia can encounter significant difficulties in a relational sphere because of communication problems, but they are intelligent, conscious, able to think, to feel emotions and understand the other’s feelings. Psychotherapy, in our clinical experience, is a tool that may help survivors and caregivers to reposition on the existential continuum interrupted by illness. The purpose of this paper is to present one of the psychotherapeutic intervention groups of Centro Afasia CIRP - Fondazione Carlo Molo Onlus. The focus will be on the process of intervention and on the research design of a psychotherapeutic group designed for people with aphasia. It will principally describe the preliminary stages of the intervention, the research: the method, the assessment of needs, the data collection, and the aims of the intervention.
Keywords: Aphasia, communication, change, psychotherapy and rehabilitation, operative group, clinical process.
