This webinar provides an overview of the Better Conversations approach to communication partner training for people with aphasia and their family communication partners for speech and language therapists who are new to this therapy approach. Participants will develop an understanding of how aphasia affects everyday  conversations, and the principles of the Better Conversations approach to communication partner training. After this training, participants will be able to identify  conversation barriers affecting people with aphasia and their family conversation partners, and offer techniques to reduce these barriers.
