"A highly readable book that will engage the interests of a wide range of rehabilitation professionals. Each chapter thoughtfully echoes an underlying emphasis on holistic care, resulting in a unique contribution to the rehabilitation literature. Presented in the context of foundational scientific evidence, and integrating specific clinical guidance with worksheets and case illustrations, this book is immediately applicable to clinical care. It will be a go-to resource for rehabilitation clinicians."--Jennifer J. Vasterling, PhD, Chief of Psychology, VA Boston Healthcare System; Professor of Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine
"These pioneers and master practitioners of brain injury rehabilitation have produced an incredibly beneficial and practical workbook that will allow highly effective approaches to rehabilitation to become widely available across the globe. The science is excellent, the clinical practice state of the art, and the humane whole-person approach worthy of great admiration. There is nothing else like this--if you work with even one brain-injured person, you have to have this workbook.”--Ian H. Robertson, PhD, Global Brain Health Institute, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
"It is refreshing to find a book that addresses both theoretical and practical aspects of cognitive rehabilitation, including practical examples of the critical role that cognitive deficits play in everyday life. Particularly useful tools and strategies for compensating for deficits associated with specific brain functions are reinforced throughout the book. This is an excellent resource for everyone from students to seasoned therapists looking to expand their skills. It is especially pleasing that the book discusses vitally important factors--such as mood, identity, and fatigue--that are often overlooked in the rehabilitation process."--Susan K. Kime, OTR/L, occupational therapist in private practice, Phoenix, Arizona

Extremely practical and straightforward, I have already started using it with my patients.
Useful for neuropsychologists who would like to provide rehab, but also includes useful information and worksheets for feedback sessions.
It is also reassuring to know that this resource comes from such reputable authors who have a lot of experience with cognitive rehab.
