Mark Ylvisaker's work championed the principles of person-centered, collaborative intervention in speech-language pathology, and it continues to both ground the field and guide its further progress. Ylvisaker's influence is relevant at the individual level, providing clinicians with effective intervention techniques, and also provides important direction for research into cognitive-communication rehabilitation after traumatic brain injury (TBI). The purpose of this article is to celebrate Ylvisaker's work through a discussion of its influence on the authors so that readers will be able to: (a) describe principles of person-centered intervention, (b) explain the purpose and use of metaphor in treatment of self-regulation for clients with TBI, and (c) describe how clinical work and research inform each other in the pursuit of evidence-based practice.
