Cognitive Rehabilitation
on the Continuum of
Recovery: The How To’s
September 22, 2012
Course Overview
This course is designed for an interdisciplinary
audience addressing cognitive rehabilitation
through the care continuum. Every profession
working with the acquired brain injury (ABI)
population participates regularly in cognitive
rehab even if they are not directly providing
therapy. The course instructors are Frazier

provide cognitive rehabilitation to ABI survivors
and psychoemotional support to patients and
their families. The following topics will be
addressed by the course instructors:
•Outcome, performance, and behavior scales
used in ABI programs. •Neuropharmacologic treatment of cognition
and behavior in brain injury.
•The prevalence, role, and manifestations of
agitation that characterize the acute phase
of ABI recovery and the use of the Agitated
Behavior Scale and appropriate coping
•The evidence base and effective methods for
intervention with the cognitive domains of
attention, memory, and executive functions
across the stages of recovery.
•The rationale and methods for incorporating
cognitive rehab into physical therapy
•Facilitation of psychoemotional adjustment in
the acute phase of brain injury recovery. •Common psychoemotional issues that
complicate the rehab process, psychotherapy
interventions used to address those issues
and alleviate psychiatric symptoms, and
how psychotherapy is adapted to address
the unique needs of the cognitively impaired
patient. •Future directions of cognitive rehab evidence
and solutions to barriers to effective cognitive
