Abstract
This study investigated factors associated with resilience in individuals with aphasia. Resilience is a phenomenon demonstrated when a healthy system of adaptation is present across several levels including individual or personal, family, community or society, in response to exposure to adversity such as communication impairment. Resilience was examined from the perspective of individuals who have experienced aphasia, and their families and caregivers. Sub-factors associated with successful outcomes for individuals with aphasia were identified through a qualitative approach using content analysis of personal interviews with persons who have experienced aphasia, their families, and caregivers. These sub-factors were grouped thematically to constitute the following major factors associated with the demonstration of resilience: support networks, person-first, and thinking positively. These factors represent the views of people with aphasia and their caregivers who participated in this study, and parallel factors associated with resilience that have been identified in previous research with related populations.
