Neuropsychology for Occupational Therapists
Cognition in Occupational Performance
In Part 1, theoretical frameworks are introduced and guide an analysis of the relationship between cognition and occupational performance. The occupational therapy process is applied to cognitive rehabilitation, with a consideration of treatment approaches and methods of assessment and intervention.
Part 2 outlines the theoretical background to cognitive function together with the effects of brain injury. Chapter by chapter, each of the major elements of cognition is presented, together with the impairments that may arise from brain injury. This combined approach to the study of cognition is supported by case studies. Suggestions for assessment and intervention are provided, relating back to the occupational therapy process described in Part 1.
Written in a clear and user-friendly style, this book provides a basic guide to normal cognition. The impact of cognitive impairments upon everyday living is explored and guidance is given upon the planning and implementation of rehabilitation to optimise occupational performance.
