Recent developments in neuropsychological rehabilitation
Wilson, B. A.
Clinical Psychology Forum, 85, 11-13
Year of publication:
A recent symposium held at the Annual Conference of the Division of Clinical Psychology (University of Warwick, April 1995) addressed recent developments in neuropsychological rehabilitation. It focused on four of the main cognitive deficits resulting from brain injury that may impede functional recovery and return to independent living. These were the dysexecutive syndrome, amnesia, aphasia and unilateral visual neglect. The contributors described and evaluated recent treatment and rehabilitation strategies. Although guided by at least one of the main theoretical influences on neuropsychological rehabilitation, each paper was primarily concerned with improving real life skills.
