Supportive psychotherapy for a patient exhibiting alexia without agraphia
Published accounts of alexia without agraphia have focused primarily on diagnostic and neuroanatomic issues. This case study describes psychotherapeutic interventions with an alexic patient and how these were integrated in the course of neuropsychologically oriented neurorehabilitation. This milieu approach facilitates a broad understanding of the patient in that it allows the psychotherapist access to multiple sources of input concerning the patient’s emotional reactions. Working with neurologic patients’ “feelings” about their neuropsychologic impairments can be useful to their neurorehabilitation. © 1991 Aspen Publishers, Inc.
