Sohlberg and Mateer's landmark introductory text helped put cognitive rehabilitation on the map for a generation of clinicians, researchers, educators, and students. Now, more than a decade later, the discipline has come of age. This new volume provides a comprehensive overview of this fast-evolving field. More than a revised edition, the text reflects the dramatic impact of recent advances in neuroscience and computer technology, coupled with changes in service delivery models. The authors describe a broad range of clinical interventions for assisting persons with acquired cognitive impairments--including deficits in attention, memory, executive functions, and communication--and for managing associated emotional and behavioral issues. For each approach, theoretical underpinnings are reviewed in depth and clinical protocols delineated. Difficult concepts are explained in a clear, straightforward fashion, with realistic case examples bringing the material to life. Also included are samples of relevant assessment instruments, rating scales, and patient handouts. Throughout, the new volume emphasizes the need to work from a community perspective, providing a framework for forming collaborative partnerships with families and caregivers. It is an essential resource for professionals across a wide variety of rehabilitation specialities, and will serve as a text in courses on rehabilitation methods and neurogenic disorders.

"This is probably the best book on neurobehavioral remediation on the market. It is grounded in the neuro- and cognitive sciences while based on the authors' extensive rehabilitation experiences. The science is sound; the methodology is practical, effective, and respectful of the patient's dignity and well-being; and the coverage of conditions and issues is comprehensive and up to date. Students and practitioners alike will profit from the knowledge, technical advice, and practical admonitions these experienced and insightful clinicians provide." - Muriel D. Lezak, Department of Neurology, Oregon Health Sciences University, USA "This book is precise, well organized, and easy to follow. It covers the main topics of concern to clinicians and families, and the sequence is logical and clear. Sohlberg and Mateer have a real gift for explaining difficult concepts in ways that make them seem completely understandable and sensible. In addition to these strengths, the book's balanced perspective and solid theoretical grounding really make it stand out among others in this area." - Jill Winegardner, Neuropsychology Consultant, Dominican Hospital, Santa Cruz, California, USA "This volume provides a systematic, practical framework that is clearly referenced to contemporary theory and research. ... Current best practices are described and accompanied by an extensive array of worksheets, assessment and monitoring tools, and other useful supporting materials. Sohlberg and Mateer remains the premier text in the area and belongs within arm's reach of any professional or student in disciplines providing postacute brain injury rehabilitation services." - James F. Malec, Research Director, Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana; Professor Emeritus, Mayo Clinic, Minnesota, USA
