Cognitive Therapy (CT)

CT focuses on identifying and modifying dysfunction in cognitive processes that lead to sub-optimal performance for patients in their lives. By identifying the way in which a patient’s cognitive functioning is impaired through a screening assessment or sometimes through a more comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation, a therapist can develop an individualized treatment plan to strengthen areas that have been affected by a TBI. Cognitive therapy can also help patients develop adaptive strategies to lessen the impact of cognitive dysfunction. Through Cognitive therapy, therapists teach long-lasting skills that help restore and maintain everyday functioning and assist patients to overcome difficulties with attention, effective communication, concentration, memory and problem solving that occur as a result of TBI.
