Cognitive Rehabilitation of Memory: A Clinical-Neuropsychological Introductioncomprehensively reviews evidence-based research for each clinical tool, defining guidelines on how to assess patients and set treatment goals and best practices for creating individualized rehabilitation programs. The book also provides essential background knowledge on the nature and causes of memory impairment. Dr. Helmut Hildebrandt describes a wide range of interventions, including memory aids, learning strategies and non-cognitive treatment options

  • Outlines guidelines for treating patients with memory disorder
  • Reviews rehabilitation programs to improve memory function
  • Examines non-cognitive approaches for improving memory impairments
