Neuropsychology

It has been estimated that in the U.S., every year, about 2.6 million people have some type of 大脑 受伤.  This is the result of trauma, 中风, tumor, or other illnesses.  更多的 than 5 million Americans who have suffered 大脑 受伤 require assistance in performing 每天 activities. Burke Rehabilitation Hospital is actively involved in all aspects of treatment.

How does a 大脑 受伤 affect your life?
When someone suffers a 大脑 受伤, their world turns upside down and they are forced to deal with a constellation of unfamiliar and often upsetting issues. The presentation of 大脑 受伤 fluctuates over time, and the person’s needs change accordingly. Significant others and caregivers are also adversely affected by this trauma. Understanding the 受伤, as well as the ongoing rehabilitation process, is necessary for the effective management of the patient. 

The 大脑 is the most complex organ in the body. It controls and coordinates voluntary and involuntary functions. Depending on where and how severely the 大脑 is injured, the person will experience different 认知, behavioral and 情感 changes.

Cognitive issues in people with 大脑 受伤 typically include problems with attention, 内存, processing speed and problem-solving abilities. Behavioral and 情感 challenges include irritability, impulsivity, depression, 焦虑, and difficulty with 情感 control. Customized rehabilitation and long term intervention are essential in order to optimize the person’s outcome.

A Neuropsychological Approach to Treatment
At Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, we offer a continuum of care which starts in the inpatient rehabilitation unit and continues on an outpatient basis. The neuropsychologist evaluates, diagnoses, and treats those who have suffered 大脑 受伤. The person, as well as his/her loved ones, is assisted in their navigation of this unpredictable and challenging journey. In accordance with individual needs, the following Neuropsychological Services are provided:

  • Assessment: Neuropsychologists administer tests which clarify how an 受伤 has altered the 大脑’s ability to process information. Specific changes in behavior and emotion are also noted.  Findings from these evaluations determine rehabilitation requirements.
     
  • Cognitive Remediation: Specific physical, 认知, 情感, and behavioral factors that may complicate treatment efforts are identified. Cognitive exercises emphasize compensatory strategies that use an individual’s strengths to offset specific deficits. The goal is to enhance the person’s ability to address 每天 needs. 
     
  • Individual Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is an integral part of treatment and focuses largely on awareness of deficits and acceptance of disability. Adjustment to pervasive change and loss is explored in this process. The impact of the 大脑 受伤 on social functioning is also addressed.
     
  • Family and Couple Therapy: Caring for a loved one following 大脑 受伤 can result in confusion, exhaustion, and frustration. In addition, people who experience 大脑 injuries may isolate themselves from their social system and yearn for affirmation of their struggle. Significant others should therefore be actively involved in the treatment process.
     
  • Group Therapy: Our groups are diverse and explore many issues that impact the various stages of the rehabilitation process. Each group has its own focus and members are placed in a therapy group that best matches their needs.

Outpatient neuropsychology services may be covered by insurance but will need to be verified by each patient's particular plan. A prescription from a physician may also be required for the neuropsychological evaluation.

Psychotherapy Groups

In addition to one-on-one therapy, Burke's outpatient department also offers specialized therapy groups. Each group is tailored to help individuals and their loved ones navigate the unpredictable and exhausting rehabilitation journey, which is often full of uncertainty and fear. We provide beneficial group sessions that can facilitate positive responses to the adverse impact of 受伤 and illness.

The therapy groups are facilitated by professionals in the field of neuropsychology, with specialized training and experience in addressing each individual’s unique clinical needs. Our groups are diverse and explore many issues that impact the various stages of the rehabilitation process.
