Clinicians will be introduced to an integrative cognitive rehabilitation psychotherapy model that includes simultaneous assessment and treatment of three domains (cognitive, psychological, and substance and alcohol use) and eight levels of intervention (medication, cognitive retraining, internal compensatory strategies, external compensatory strategies, environmental adaptations, alternative interventions, healthy lifestyle, and medical) for each of the three domains across all ages using a bio-cog-psycho-social model and evidence-based interventions for people living with brain injury. Motivational Interviewing (MI) will be discussed as a clinical intervention to assess readiness to change and setting goals and objectives. Four stages of treatment across the three domains will be described (surviving, healing, thriving, and ending) within setting up a treatment plan and monitoring progress. Identification and management of potential ethical and cultural issues will be discussed.
