Shadden (communication disorders, U. of Arkansas and his co-authors, (communications and sociology/criminal justice respectively, both of the U. of Arkansas examine how social construction and the development of identity apply to treatments for aphasia and interventions for significant others. The authors assert that different disorders cause different perceptions of patients' perceptions of self. They examine clinical practices and their influence on the narrative self, the range of neurogenic communication disorders, the dimensions of the self and culture, narrative processes, and considerations of time. They then apply their model to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, aphasia and dementia, then call for a sociological approach to clinical action.
