Abstract

Overprotection can manifest itself in conversation when a spouse ‘speaks for’ a person with aphasia. This tendency can have an effect on a person with aphasia’s participation in conversation. To study this phenomenon and establish if there are relationships between overprotection, ‘speaking for’ behaviors and participation in conversation, eighteen couples completed questionnaires on overprotection and were video-recorded in an interview situation. Main results demonstrated significant and moderate relationships between (1) overprotection as reported by spouses and their 'speaking for' behaviors in conversation and (2) spouses’ ‘speaking for’ behaviors and minor participation in conversation by person with aphasia.
