Are you an OT or an SLP currently practicing in cognitive rehabilitation and interested in learning new assessment and treatment techniques? Are you a psychologist or mental health provider who would like to understand more about how your clients learn and remember so they can be more successful with the tools you provide them? Are you a PT or a chiropractor who would like to become more familiar with cognition and cognitive rehabilitation to increase your client’s adherence to therapy protocols?
The Cognitive Rehabilitation for Practicing Clinicians course is designed by practicing clinicians for practicing clinicians. This interactive course combines didactics, real-world tools and techniques, evidence reviews, and interactive learning experiences to expand your knowledge base and comfort level in working with both traditional and complex (dual diagnosis) cognitive rehabilitation clients.
Participants will review models of attention, memory, and executive function through both theoretical and practical lenses, identifying how the models can conceptually guide daily practice. Evidence-based assessment and treatment approaches will be presented, along with an exploration of how to address the real-world challenges clinicians sometimes face in implementing literature recommendations (efficacy versus effectiveness). Discussions about how to encourage full participation and optimal recovery outcomes for traditional neurologic populations such as TBI, stroke, and age-related cognitive decline, as well as a variety of behavioral health populations, are facilitated.
Whether your clinical setting focuses on traditional inpatient and outpatient programming, cognitive Functional Capacity Evaluations, or other unique areas, this course will help turn assessment results into actionable treatment goals and activities. With up to date evidence and references, this is a learning opportunity with “next day clinical application” that is relevant for both seasoned clinicians and those new to cognitive rehab.
Build and solidify your role as a cognitive expert on your team through the tools, techniques, and knowledge you will gain in this interactive workshop!
