Towards a comprehensive model of cognitive rehabilitation.
Neuropsychological Rehabilitation, 12, 97-110
Year of publication:
Cognitive rehabilitation is a field that needs a broad theoretical base incorporating frameworks, theories and models from a number of different areas. No one model or group of models is sufficient to address the complex problems facing people with cognitive problems consequent upon brain injury. This paper considers some of the models that have influenced cognitive rehabilitation, including models of cognition, assessment, recovery, behaviour, emotion, compensation and learning. An attempt is made to synthesise these different models into a comprehensive model of cognitive rehabilitation..
