Abstract

E-mails from the daughter of a person with aphasia are used to track changes in family adaptation over time. Basic thematic content analyses are compared to data derived from the software program Linquistic Inquiry and Word Counts (LIWC) (Pennebaker, Frances, & Booth, 2001). LIWC data analyses parallel thematic content analyses closely and, in one instance, provide additional insight into the daughter's ability to distance herself in a positive fashion from the family crisis, while remaining fully engaged and caring.
