Cognitive Rehabilitation

Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy (CRT) is the process of re-learning thinking skills that have been lost or altered, as a result of damage to brain cells/chemistry.

If skills cannot be re-learned, then new ones have to be taught to enable affected individuals to compensate for their lost functions. That’s where cognitive rehabilitation steps in…

How Can Cognitive Rehabilitation Help?

After a brain injury, the aim is to enhance a person’s functional competence in real world situations by direct retraining, compensatory strategies, or cognitive tools. Cognitive rehabilitation helps individuals make the most of their abilities and increase self-reliance and self-confidence by providing training, resources, information and adaptive equipment.

Our neuropsychologists take a caring, personalised approach to create a treatment plan that involves not only the person with the brain injury – but also their family or friends. By creating experiences that require individuals to interact, analyse, question, reflect and connect what they have learned in new situations in the community, we achieve the best possible outcomes for everyone involved.

With sessions at Jurmaine Health – Centre for Brain & Body Improvement; our dedicated neuropsychologist team works closely with clients from all areas of Victoria – as well as their loved ones – throughout the journey towards post-brain injury recovery.

What Can I Expect?

The process of Cognitive Rehabilitation comprises of four components:

  1. Education about cognitive weaknesses and strengths. The focus here is on developing awareness of the problem.
  2. Process Training. This refers to the development of skills through direct retraining or practicing the underlying cognitive skills. The focus here is on resolving the problem.
  3. Strategy Training. This involves the use of environmental, internal and external strategies. The focus here is on compensating rather than resolving the problem.
  4. Functional Activities Training. This involves the application of the other three components in everyday life. The focus here is on real life improvements
