Exploring Brain Injury FreeBookWhat is neuropsychological rehabilitation and why is it important?

Introduction by Barbara A. Wilson

This FreeBook is aimed at those who have suffered a brain injury, their families and carers, and professionals who are involved in neuropsychological rehabilitation. Brain Rehabilitation is a process whereby people who are disabled by injury or disease work together with professional staff, relatives and members of the wider community to achieve their optimum physical, psychological, social and vocational well-being. Neuropsychological rehabilitation (NR) is concerned with the amelioration of cognitive, emotional, psychosocial and behavioural deficits caused by an insult to the brain. NR makes life better for brain injured patients and their families and it also makes economic sense.

After Brain Injury: Survivor Stories

After Brain Injury: Survivor Stories was launched in 2014 to meet the need for a series of books aimed at those who have suffered a brain injury, their families and carers, and professionals who are involved in neuropsychological rehabilitation. Brain disorders can be life-changing events with far-reaching consequences. However, in the current climate of cuts in funding and service provision for neuropsychological rehabilitation, there is a risk that people whose lives have been transformed by brain injury are left feeling isolated with little support.
