Group Cognitive Remediation Therapy After Stroke and Other CV Accidents

Cognitive remediation therapy teaches a patient to use existing abilities to compensate for deficits in other areas. Cognitive remediation treatment incorporates all domains of functioning: emotional, behavioral, and cognitive.Cognitive rehabilitation is based on the principle of neuroplasticity, meaning that the human brain is not a static organ but can be physically changed. These changes can occur within neural pathways and synapses after exposure to enriched environments. Cognitive remediation provides such an enriched environment.

Why a Group?
You are not alone in what you are experiencing. Others who have had a cerebrovascular accident know better than anyone how confusing its cognitive after-effects may be. Going through remediation as part of a group allows you to get the help you need in the company of others who understand what you’ve been through. A group setting allows you to receive and provide feedback on strategies that work best, as well as encouragement to help you along your journey. Learning these new strategies in a group reduces the sense of isolation that often accompanies cognitive dysfunction.
