The two-workbook set, Cognitive Rehabilitation for Executive Functions, has practical intervention exercises focusing on the reconstruction of brain executive functions. The clinical approaches used address the following functions: attention, concentration, processing speed, categorization, sequencing, awareness, neglect, working memory, reasoning, judgment, humor, language, planning ability, impulse control, and stress/anger management.
Within the two-workbook set, each chapter begins with a brief overview, followed with a description of the realm of functioning to be covered, concluding with 1-2 page exercises that can be performed by a paraprofessional or family member. Every exercise only takes a few minutes to complete and can be arranged to supplement other forms of intervention. All of the exercises have been developed and proven through years of practical application with inpatient and outpatient clients in Rehabilitation.
The Practical Guide to Cognitive Rehabilitation For Clinicians was developed by experts in cognitive rehabilitation who recognized the limits of many cognitive rehabilitation programs due to insurance limits and shortened hospital stays. Developing worksheets and exercises based on available research on brain injury and neuroscience, they have created a practical workbook that addresses the areas most commonly affected by a variety of neurological conditions, including traumatic and acquired brain injuries.
