Description

This clinical guide is the culmination of over three decades of experience in neuropsychological rehabilitation of individuals with traumatic brain injuries. Developed by the experts at the world-renowned Brain Injury Day Treatment Program at New York University Medical Center's Rusk Institute, this text emphasizes the interdependence of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functions in the human brain. The book articulates the holistic rationale of rehabilitation in a therapeutic community setting, pioneered by Kurt Goldstein.

The text is accompanied by five DVDs of edited video clips that illustrate the key organizational, programmatic, and therapeutic clinical procedures that have proven so effective in optimizing the functional competence of brain-injured persons. Written in a conversational and instructional tone, the book will be of interest to senior administrators and professionals at neurorehabilitation centers, as well as psychologists and neuropsychologists in private practice or working in hospital-based program settings.
