After an introduction to the current theories and research findings related to brain injury rehabilitation, this text presents 20 case studies of adults who sustained severe brain damage caused by traumatic head injuries, encephalitis, stroke, hypoxia and other conditions. Problems that follow such injuries are analyzed in detail; these include loss of self-care skills, memory impairment, and language, reading, visuoperceptual and behavioral difficulties. The chapters describe the lifestyle of each individual before the onset of brain damage and the subsequent symptoms, neuropsychological assessment, rehabilitation, and long-term outcome of their condition. Most chapters include a report by the patient and/or family member, thus enhancing the reader's understanding of the predicaments faced by brain-injured individuals as they learn to cope with traumatic changes in lifestyle. Although improvement for those with severe brain injuries is slow and limited, the patients described in the book made some progress after their admission to rehabilitation services. The exhaustive analysis of each case and a step-by-step description of management will serve as an inspiring and informative guide for students, professionals and other caregivers.

About the Author:

Barbara A. Wilson is at Medical Research Council, Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge.

Review:

"By focusing on the individual human being with a memory or language or perceptual or behavioral disorder and including examples of her own failed treatments, Wilson paints a picture of neuropsychological rehabilitation that is very true to life. By providing these examples of her resourceful
and very personal treatment along with her patients reactions, adjustments and long-term outcomes, Wilson inspires clinicians engaged in their day-to-day attempts to help individuals with cognitive disorders..."From Barbara A. Wilson, Oxford University Press, 1999."

"...guided by a firm foundation in scientific theory, while maintaining the flexibility and creativeness characteristic of an art."--JINSVol.7, Iss.4

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1999. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. After a discussion of current theory and research findings relating to rehabilitation of brain injury, this book presents 20 case studies of adults with severe brain injuries sustained several years earlier. The causes of their brain damage include traumatic head injuries, encephalitis, stroke and hypoxia. Problems that follow such injuries including loss of self-care skills, memory impairment, language, reading, visuoperceptual and behavioural difficulities, are analysed in detail. The book describes the premorbid lifestyle of each of the 20 individuals, the onset of their brain damage, subsequent symptoms, neuropsychological assessment, rehabilitation, and long-term outcome. Most chapters include a report by the patient and/or family member, thus providing an extra dimension that helps to increase the reader s understanding of the predicaments faced by brain-injured individuals as they learn to cope with traumatic changes in lifestyle. Although improvement for most brain-injured people is slow and limited, all those described in this book made some progress after their admission to rehabilitation services. The exhaustive analysis of each case and step-by-step description of treatment will encourage professionals and other care-givers that much can be done for this severely injured group. For students of neuropsychology and rehabilitation, the book should serve as an inspiring and informative supplementary text. Seller Inventory # APC9780195065985
