Rehabilitation professionals face a key challenge when working with clients with acquired cognitive impairments: how to teach new skills to individuals who have difficulty learning. Unique in its focus, this book presents evidence-based instructional methods specifically designed to help this population learn more efficiently. The expert authors show how to develop, implement, and evaluate an individualized training plan. They provide practical guidelines for teaching multistep procedures, cognitive strategies, the use of external aids, and more. User-friendly features include 17 sample worksheets and forms; blank forms can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

Despite the increased public awareness of traumatic brain injury (TBI), the complexities of the neuropsychiatric, neuropsychological, neurological, and other physical consequences of TBI of all severities across the lifespan remain incompletely understood by patients, their families, healthcare providers, and the media. Keeping pace with advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and science of TBI, the Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury, Third Edition, comprehensively fills this gap in knowledge. Nearly all 50 chapters feature new authors, all of them experts in their field. Chapters new to this edition include biomechanical forces, biomarkers, neurodegenerative dementias, suicide, endocrine disorders, chronic disease management, and social cognition. An entirely new section is devoted to the evaluation and treatment of mild TBI, including injuries in athletes, military service members and veterans, and children and adolescents. These chapters join newly updated sections on the assessment and treatment of the cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and other physical sequelae of TBI. The Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury is a must-read for all of those working in any of the multitude of disciplines that contribute to the care and rehabilitation of persons with brain injury. This new volume is also a potentially useful reference for policymakers in both the public and private sectors.

Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury: A Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists is designed for speech-language pathologists (SLPs) treating adults with cognitive-communicative impairments following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Cognitive impairments are one of the cardinal features of TBI, affecting communication and activities of daily living. This book integrates scientific information into a user friendly and practical application tool for practicing SLPs and students in training to become SLPs. Section I contains chapters that serve as background for understanding the treatment of TBI. Included are chapters addressing mechanisms of injury, neuropathology, recovery patterns, and applicable classification and outcome measures following TBI. An overview of cognitive-communicative impairments is also included, as are sections devoted to common compounding and concomitant conditions that impact individuals with TBI and their rehabilitation. Section I also contains chapters describing the rehabilitation process following TBI from the broader landscape of interdisciplinary and patient-centered rehabilitation and specific to cognitive rehabilitation treatment (CRT) for adults with TBI. Section II contains chapters devoted to describing CRT in the areas of attention and information processing speed impairments, memory, executive function and awareness, and social communication. Chapters in section II focus on treatment approaches that have an established base, described in a clinically useable format. Each chapter includes a summary of the research evidence, recommended candidates, and background on a specific treatment approach. They also include a section devoted to 'Treatment in Action,' designed to explain applicable steps, procedures, and needed materials for implementation of a specific approach. Charts, figures, tables, and appendices are also included to facilitate the use of a specific approach. Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury can serve as a supplemental textbook for graduate courses on neurologic communication disorders. It is also a valuable resource for students during clinical practicum with adults with TBI. This book is also a professional resource that summarizes information in a way that is applicable to practicing SLPs who work with adults with TBI and their families.

Brain plasticity is the focus of a growing body of research with significant implications for neurorehabilitation. This state-of-the-art volume explores ways in which brain-injured individuals may be helped not only to compensate for their loss of cognitive abilities, but also possibly to restore those abilities. Expert contributors examine the extent to which damaged cortical regions can actually recover and resume previous functions, as well as how intact regions are recruited to take on tasks once mediated by the damaged region. Evidence-based rehabilitation approaches are reviewed for a range of impairments and clinical populations, including both children and adults.

Die Integrierte neurokognitive Therapie (INT) ist ein Gruppentherapieansatz, der erstmals alle Bereiche der MATRICS-Initiative des NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health, USA) in ein umfassendes Therapiekonzept integriert (MATRICS: Measurement and Treatment Research to improve Cognition in Schizophrenia). Diese Initiative definierte 11 neuro- und sozialkognitive Funktionsbereiche, die für schizophren Erkrankte relevant sind und deren Stärkung eines der wichtigsten Therapieziele sein muss. Die INT basiert auf den kognitiven Unterprogrammen des weitverbreiteten und umfassend evaluierten Integrierten psychologischen Therapieprogamms (IPT). Die INT ist ein ressourcen- und recovery-orientierter Ansatz, der auch die Verbesserung von Therapiemotivation und Selbstwahrnehmung zum Ziel hat. Der Fokus liegt konsequent auf der Gruppendynamik und dem Selbst- und Alltagsbezug der Patienten. Übergeordnetes Ziel ist die Erhöhung der Lebensqualität und -funktionalität und damit die Wiedereingliederung der Patienten in die Gesellschaft. Das vorliegende Manual - ... bietet dem Kliniker einen gut verständlichen Einstieg in die Behandlung von Neuro- und sozialen Kognitionen im Rahmen eines umfassenden und gut aufeinander abgestimmten Therapie- und Behandlungsangebots - ... beschreibt detailliert und gut strukturiert den Aufbau der INT in 4 Modulen - ... veranschaulicht mit zahlreichen Fallbeispielen das therapeutische Vorgehen auch in schwierigen Therapiesituationen - ... enthält umfangreiche und teilweise computergestützte Therapiematerialien, die sich patientenorientiert und vielfältig – auch im Einzelsetting – einsetzen lassen - ... thematisiert in kleineren Einheiten mögliche Indikationsstellungen, eine sorgfältige und individuell abgestimmte Therapieplanung („Fallkonzeption“) und Implementierung der INT Die INT wurde von Therapeuten und Patienten sehr gut angenommen und durch eine internationale, randomisierte Multicenterstudie in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz erfolgreich evaluiert. Das Manual eignet sich hervorragend zur Vorbereitung und Durchführung von Therapiesitzungen.
