It has been suggested that balancing ‘technical skills with a ‘human approach’ may promote a client-centred approach to treatment and may be more consistent with what clients see as important in rehabilitation. This poster draws on a co-autoethnography that explored how a philosophy of client-centred practice which explicitly incorporated both ‘technical’ and ‘caring’ skills informed clinical practice with people with acquired brain injury. It reflects on how this approach to therapy could inform speech pathology practice with people with aphasia.
