Learning unit contents

Together, we will look at different themes and areas of neuropsychological rehabilitation.

After a general presentation of the different methods, you will present one of the following important themes in groups:

Revalidation of attention
Revalidation of long-term memory
Revalidation of executive functions
Revalidation of short-term memory
Revalidation of social cognition
Revalidation of anosognosia
Revalidation of hemineglect
Management centred on the living environment or objectives etc.

The aim of this course is to address these themes, but also to develop your critical thinking skills with regard to scientific data. The aim is to help you become future clinicians capable of using the literature to guide your clinical practice.

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

You will be introduced to the general principles guiding the implementation of a cognitive rehabilitation programme (contract, planning, measuring effectiveness, etc.), followed by a number of methods specific to the particular deficits presented by the patient.
