Ep. 5 - An Interview with Shirley Morganstein: Reflections on Relational Practice

ANCDS Podcasts show

Summary: Shirley Morganstein first learned about aphasia while an undergraduate at NYU. She completed her Master’s degree at the University of Minnesota, and, as she says, was privileged to have Hildred Schuell and her staff at the Minnesota VA Hospital as teachers. After her return to NYC, she worked at Rusk Institute, with Martha Taylor Sarno, The Mount Sinai Hospital, and then the Kessler Institute of Rehabilitation in New Jersey. In 2004, she and her long-time colleague, Marilyn Certner Smith, formed a Life Participation practice in Montclair, called Speaking of Aphasia. Now semi-retired, she continues to see patients and is an adjunct professor at New York University. She has published two aphasia workbooks with Marilyn Center Smith, and maintains a blog on Word Press called Relationship and Reflection in Aphasia Therapy. In her free time, she enjoys writing and exploring the art of Ikebana.
