What is Rehabilitation Psychology?
Rehabilitation psychology, or talk therapy, is a way to help those with a broad variety of psychological symptoms and emotional difficulties stemming from a brain injury or neurological condition. It can help eliminate or decrease troubling symptoms, provide a better quality of life and improve overall well-being.
Psychological and emotional issues are often overlooked, even when physical, behavioral, and cognitive symptoms are treated. Rehabilitation psychology has helped to treat anxiety and depression symptoms that may impact cognition and engagement in therapies. and can be used to treat loved ones who often play a critical supporting role in the patient recovery process.
Commonly Treated Conditions Include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders
- Brain tumor
- Degenerative neurological diseases
- Post-concussive Disorder
- Autoimmune diseases (such as MS)
- Overall mood (Depression and anxiety)
