Rehabilitation for cognitive impairment: Does cognitive psychology apply?
Wilson, B. & Patterson, K.
Applied Cognitive Psychology, 4, 247-260.
Year of publication:
The most obvious neuropsychological application of cognitive psychology would concern rehabilitation for neurological patients with deficits in cognitive processes. We debate here the extent to which theoretical cognitive psychology is currently contributing to the design of rehabilitation. On one side of the debate our assessment suggests that, at present, theories from cognitive psychology have little impact on the majority of treatment programmes; on the other side we note some current and future theoretical developments which could enhance rapport between theory and therapy.
