Considering Cognition: How to Assess and Treat Deficits of Cognitive Awareness
1 Continuing Education Credit(s) Available
One of our brain’s greatest features is its ability to plan, analyze, recognize errors and adapt to new situations—in other words, to be self-aware. Our brain’s ability to function in this way allows us to understand who we are and what we can do in life. With an acquired brain injury like stroke or traumatic brain injury, this function of the brain is usually impacted, leading to deficits in the activity and participation areas of function. A therapist recognizing this and being able to accurately assess and treat impairments in self awareness is key to a patient’s successful recovery from brain injury.
