DESCRIPTION

Get the tools to provide more effective treatment for the neurobehaviorally disordered TBI patient!

As traditional treatment success rates for many persons with traumatic brain injury (TBI) are proving less than effective, clinicians search for other therapies that may be more productive. Alternate Therapies in the Treatment of Brain Injury and Neurobehavioral Disorders: A Practical Guide discusses at length various nontraditional treatment approaches such as music therapy, art therapy, EEG biofeedback, and others that may provide additional help for the neurobehaviorally disordered TBI patient.

This text provides a practical, in-depth overview of a range of nontraditional interventions and therapies. Each treatment is extensively discussed with explanations on how it can be effectively applied in rehabilitation programs. Models, case samples, contacts, and lists of training programs and professional organizations are given for each therapeutic modality. Each chapter has clear, illustrative drawings, tables, and charts, as well as comprehensive references for further research.


Alternate Therapies in the Treatment of Brain Injury and Neurobehavioral Disorders: A Practical Guide discusses these alternative treatments:
horticulture therapy

This book is a comprehensive source for nontraditional therapies essential for physicians; neuropsychologists; psychiatrists; rehabilitation specialists; hospital directors, administrators, and TBI professionals.
