The understanding and management of cognitive difficulties by patients, family members and staff are central elements in neurorehabilitation. However, they are often not facilitated in a formal way due to constraints of time, staffing or other resources.

Neuropsychological Rehabilitation is a ready–to–use therapy tool that provides the resources required to run a six–session information provision/rehabilitation group for people with brain injury, their families and rehabilitation staff. It begins with a rationale for running such groups and presents a case for increasing the allocation of resources to structured information provision. Subsequent chapters provide a collection of materials that enable the professional to run group sessions. Information is presented session–by–session in the form of a script and includes prepared handouts and slides for topics such as memory, attention and executive function. Individual sessions are suitable for standalone use, and a chapter covering frequently asked questions is also included.

This accessible resource provides the materials required for running groups in one easy–to–use volume, thus minimising the preparation time for busy professionals. It will be an invaluable tool for healthcare professionals working as part of a multi–disciplinary team in a neurological setting, including psychologists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, nursing staff and medical staff.
