Providing patients with behavior, emotional and cognitive therapies.
Following brain trauma or acquired brain injury, patients may exhibit modifications to behavior, emotion, and cognitive abilities. The field of neuropsychology seeks to understand how these modifications are correlated with the brain injury, providing an informed pathway toward progress, and a most effective rehabilitation regimen.
At Moody Neuro, our Neuropsychology Department contributes to client care in three important ways: (1) comprehensive neuropsychological assessment, (2) cognitive rehabilitation and (3) management of emotional and behavioral problems.
Upon admission, every client participates in a detailed assessment of his/her cognitive and emotional status. This comprehensive evaluation assesses all aspects of an individual’s cognitive skills: attention, planning and organization, language, visual processing skills, motor and sensory functioning, and memory. Patient mood and personality are also assessed.
The results of this evaluation provide information about the client’s cognitive strengths, which allows the interdisciplinary treatment team to develop maximally-effective treatment plans and prioritize interventions. In addition, the neuropsychology team assists the client in adjusting to his/her disability, manages undesirable behaviors, provide individual and group therapy to survivors, and conducts family therapy when necessary.
