The aim of neuropsychological rehabilitation is to enable people with cognitive, emotional, or behavioural deficits to achieve their maximum potential in the domains of psychological, social, leisure, vocational or everyday functioning. Describing the holistic programme devised and adopted at the world famous Oliver Zangwill Centre and embracing a broad theoretical base, incorporating a variety of frameworks, theories and models, this book proposes an integrated approach to brain injury rehabilitation by an interdisciplinary team. The coverage explains the underlying principles involved, describes the group therapies employed, highlights a selection of real case examples and reviews the outcomes measured and achieved. This book is essential reading for clinical neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, psychiatrists, neurologists, physiotherapists, social workers and nurses.

Review quote

'... well-written and organized, deftly balancing theory and practice, while continuously keeping a finger on scientific evidence without neglecting the all-important client-centered orientation. ... this book contains so many useful guidelines and directions for research and practice in rehabilitation that it has much to offer those working in related or parallel fields of practice. ... This book is chock full of up-to-date research reviews, ready-to-use treatment programs, and ideas to stimulate any researcher or clinician. Think of it as a manual and desk reference all rolled up in a highly portable book.' Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
