Integrative Cognitive Rehabilitation Psychotherapy for People Living with Brain Injury TeleECHO
April 12, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The focus of this training is on teaching therapists how to integrate cognitive rehabilitation, psychotherapy, and substance abuse counseling; develop and implement dynamic treatment goals; work in different team settings and apply a bio-psycho-cognitive-social model of care with children and adults who are living with brain injury. Participants will be encouraged to submit a case for the group to discuss on a weekly basis. The curriculum includes working with clients who have a brain injury but not necessarily substance abuse and/or psychiatric disorders. One resource we will refer to is ACRM’s Cognitive Rehabilitation Manual.
We will use as a framework Linda Laatsch’s developmental metacognitive approach and the integrative model (read heuristic for the evidenced-based therapists) that Dr. Pedrotty has developed. Jessica Richardson, PHD CCC-SLP and Krista Wilde, PhD. will participate full time. Dr. Richardson will provide insights and knowledge on cognitive rehab and family coping issues. Dr. Wilde, PHD, will provide insights and knowledge into the neuropsychological, imaging, and outcome components. Other guests will be featured, and more experts may yet come on board on a continuing basis. Therapists will learn to work within their license and expand their areas of competence.
