Course description: This presentation will introduce an expansive understanding of how cognition serves as an underlying deficit in nearly all acquired brain injuries; therefore, requiring clinicians to consider the identification of potentially subtle cognitive deficits, prioritization of cognition as a treatment target, and addressing cognition through a combination of neurobiological and compensatory means. The talk will emphasize how establishing an effective therapeutic alliance is an essential ingredient in recovery outcomes by implementing wholistic patient-centered care.
